Beyond the Bombing:
New Hampshire

The Hillsborough Troop of Dragoons, led by Fitzhugh MacCrae, has recently emerged as an active militia in New Hampshire. MacCrae told The Boston Globe that his group comprises 63 members, of whom two-thirds are allegedly combat veterans. While he emphasizes the group's benign and civic activities, he also boasts, "We're probably better armed than the Army."

Elsewhere, the White Mountain Militia operates in Cornish under the leadership of N. Scott Stevens, who describes himself as director of the militia's "Information Services." Stevens hosted a May 14, 1995, rally in the Cornish town hall for militia members, extreme anti-gun control groups, and others hostile to the federal government.

Ed Brown, head of the Plainsfield-based Constitution Defense Militia (see Armed & Dangerous), has claimed to operate groups in seven states, but his organization has not engaged in any publicly noted activity in recent months. According to The Boston Globe, shortly after the Oklahoma City bombing. Brown said. "We think it's an inside job.... These criminals within the U.S. Government want to make us look bad."
