The minutemen were among the first people to fight in the American Revolution; their teams constituted about a quarter of the entire militia. Generally younger and more mobile, they served as part of a network for early response. They provided a highly mobile, rapidly deployed force that allowed the colonies to respond immediately to war threats, hence the name.

The term has also been applied to various later United States civilian-based military forces to recall the success and patriotism of the originals.
