[AmRevolution] NYC grenadiers mitres

What is the translation of the motto "Salus Patria Excitat" on the caps of NYC grenadiers of John Lasher during American Revolution?

Also, were these troops fighting for or against the British?

If they were fighting aganst the British, why did their mitres have a depiction of a crown?
