I'm trying to categorize the unit Jeffery Palmer was in during the Revolutionary War: Captain Jasper Gray's Company, 15th Virginia Regiment commanded by James Innis. I can see how to add militia units, but how about Regiments?

How do I give him a sticker? I made the attempt, based on models, and it isn't quite workiing. Help please.

Things I've learned (from other WikiTreers:

Both the Militia and the Continental Army were organized within the individual colonies, but they were separate entities. So Virginia Militia had units and there were Virginia regiments in the Continental Army.  The Continental Army units are called "Line" and are in categories such as Virginia Line, American Revolution.

Ooh, thanks so much. I had part of the first, but only part and none of the 2nd. Thanks so much

Now I have an additional question; I can't find 2nd Battalion, General Woodford's Brigade, Continental Army, American Revolution.. I have it in Jeffrey Palmer's profile, but I haven't selected it yet because it is red and I haven't been able to find reference to it on Wikipedia. Shall I just delete it and forget about it? Please don't click on the above link, because it might create it.
