Company Officers 1684
The Captain was the first officer of his company. He had to be diligent, courageous, and consummate in both Fortifications and the Evolutions. When leading his company, he should always be in the lead between the Lieutenant and the Ensign. He must take great care to make the Soldiers learn the Army manners, teach them how to fight, recover from breakdowns, make conversions, and conduct all the war exercises.
