Rolls and Lists of Connecticut Men in the Revolution, 1775-1783 (1901)


"This work does not profess to be more than a list of men who served as soldiers, with an account of their service and such further records as will aid in identifying them.” The rolls are broken down into regiments and companies. Information in each list varies; besides the soldiers’ names it may include the last campaign, officer’s name, date of entry into company, number of days in the service, rank, town of origin, expiration of service, and/or wages. Other lists include deserters and sick or wounded men. The Naval Record also varies; typical information includes the name of the ship, name of the captain, dates of entry and discharge, rank, wages, and deserters. Chapters include: Lexington Alarm List; Continental Regiments, 1775 and 1776; Connecticut Line, 1777–1781, 1781–1783, and 1783; State Troops, 1775, 1776, and 1777; Militia Regiments, 1776, 1777, 1778, 1779, 1780, 1781, and 1782; Militia Regiments; Naval Record; and Pensioners. An appendix and a full-name index add to the value of this work.
