Term for a volunteer soldier in the American Revolution, who were supposed to be ready to fight against the British at a minute's notice. These were often nothing more than farmers that happened to have a gun or two lying around.
Let us not confuse "minuteman," a man who quickly goes off to be a soldier, with minute man, a man whose soldier goes off too quickly.
