Actually "minute men" were special units within the militia units. They were like our seal teams today. They were given special training and expected to respond within a minute. I just read an article by a historian on his research on them. So, it wasn't the whole militia, but a smaller group within.

The minutemen of colonial times were average men that wanted to help defend their homes. They promised to be ready quickly in time of war.
