Description and HistoryEdit
The Woodchuck Militia was founded in the early days of Cornelius Coot's Duckburg to defend the recovering city from miscellaneous threates. Some estimate the number of original numbers as 20 or so, though this figure has little factual basis.
The Woodchucks (as the members were known) mostly fought against local natives, the Crazy Ducks, seeking to reclaim the land that they had owned in-between the golden age of Drakeborough and Cornelius Coot's take-over. At any rate, and in no small part thanks to Coot's brilliant and motivating leadership, the Militia was extremely effective and the Fort still stood by 1902 as Duckburg thrived.
The reason for the militia's dissolution is unknown, but whatever the circumstances of its end, it left an impact on the locals, with Cornelius's son Clinton Coot naming his scouting organization the "Junior Woodchucks" in honor of the original Woodchucks.
