Did colonists have with a standing army?
The Continental Army. When the American Revolutionary War's first battles began, the colonists did not have an organized, standing army. Before the Continental Army was formed, each individual colony had relied on a militia made of citizens, to provide local defense, or temporary regiments were used. Colonists had the desire to reorganize their militia, as tensions with Great Britain increased, and potential conflict was possible.
