After that the militia took on a more formal battalion structure and in 1794 border tensions required their mobilization for combat in what is now Michigan.
During the War of 1812-14, the garrisons at Sandwich and Fort Amherstburg were strengthened with the call out of the Essex and Kent regiments.
After a brief incursion into Essex County the Americans returned to the safety of Fort Detroit.
A combined force of Essex and Kent militia, British regulars, other Upper Canada militia and First Nations crossed the Detroit River and forced the surrender of Fort Detroit.
