 First Light Dragoons (San Francisco)
The First Light Dragoons claimed to be the first legally organized militia company mustered in under the first Militia Law passed by the first session of the California Legislature held in San Jose in 1850.
The first test came in June 1856 during the reign of the Vigilantes in San Francisco when all the troops in that city were called to arms during the period of "Insurrection".
The first call to arms was issued on October 20, 1876, when all indications seemed to point to an anti-Chinese demonstration in the Chinese quarters of the city, but no serious consequences resulted.

 Japanese Capture of the Philippines photos and text related to The Edge by First Lieutenant George Francis, USMC, ...
At first it seemed that they were justified; for their landings were only lightly opposed, and their troops advanced rapidly against an untrained and ill-equipped enemy.
The first Japanese landings on Luzon were a calculated risk, for only relatively small units—the largest was a regiment—were used to make the first landings, and occupy the airfields in north and south Luzon, Mindanao, and Job.
The first Japanese attack on January 9 was contained with heavy casualties to both sides and it was not until January 23 that the Allies withdrew to the line running from Orion to Bagac.

There were high drifts of snow around the shore, and it was later found that on account of the uncertainty of the permanence of any ice formation fields, ice should not be used for landing purposes, except under exceptional circumstances, particularly if it is desired to leave the planes there for any length of time.
During the first night at Petosky, a sixty-mile gale blew from the lake and the ice began cracking and piling up on shore.
The entire surface of the lake, although covered with about fifteen inches of ice, rose and fell with the water beneath it, and it was necessary to obtain a large number of men and take the planes further out on the ice and make them fast to prevent them from being wrecked.
