Cody: You ought to verify that number. The guard would started in 1636 using 375 as the number. My guess is that the correct number is 175.

Upon further research, the federal legislation establishing the National Guard was enacted into law in 1903. Anything prior to that, by whatever name, was a state militia that was "loaned" to the federal government during times of war. Also, by that reasoning, there could not have even been "loaning" prior to 1787 as there was no federal government yet.
