The Diary of Lieutenant von Bardeleben and Other von Donop Regiment Documents


Contains the wartime diaries of Lieutenant Johann Heinrich von Bardeleben, the company Church Book of the von Donop Regiment compiled by Chaplain Georg Christoph Coester, and the regimental journal of Quartermaster Johann Georg Zinn. Johann von Bardeleben's diary entries often include very specific information about von Bardeleben's fellow officers and hint at a general dissatisfaction with the role of the Hesse-Cassel divisions in an Englishmen's war. Georg Christoph Coester's Church Book details marriages, births, confirmations and even penance. Regimental Quartermaster Zinn's journal contributes detailed listings of officers, vessels, camp sites and other particulars of the campaigns around New York City, Trenton and Philadelphia.

Mr. Burgoyne is a recipient of the Benjamin Franklin Lifetime Achievement Award from the American Revolution Roundtable of Philadelphia.
