Veterans Guardian Supports Fayetteville Independent Light Infantry Company
The Fayetteville Independent Light Infantry Armory and Museum, commemorates the heritage of the Fayetteville Independent Light Infantry Company (F.I.L.I.). The oldest Southern Military unit in existence, F.I.L.I. was organized in 1793 and serves as the state’s official historic military command to this day. It was organized after President George Washington enacted the Militia Act
The museum chronicles the history of the company through artifacts and memorabilia from the past to present day. This includes the carriage that rode the Marquis de Lafayette during his visit to Fayetteville.
Veterans Guardian recently provided a $1,200 donation to support educational field trips to the museum. The company plans to provide continuous support to the museum in order to sustain this program. In addition, donations will be used to help maintain and preserve the museum.
The museum is located at 210 Burgess Street, Fayetteville, NC 28301.
