CD: The Hessian Collection, Volume 1: Revolutionary War Era


Four essential works focus on Hessian participants and their place in the Revolutionary era:

  • Canada during the American Revolutionary War: Lieutenant Friedrich Julius von Papet’s Journal of the Sea Voyage to North America and the Campaign Conducted There (1998). This young Brunswick officer’s journal spans the period from May 1776 to October 1783.
  • Eighteenth Century America (A Hessian Report On the People, the Land, the War) As Noted in the Diary of Chaplain Philipp Waldeck (1776-1780) (1995). A thorough, all-encompassing view of life in the budding American nation.
  • Waldeck (Germany) Soldiers of the American Revolutionary War (1991). This book contains brief biographies of every man who served in the 3rd English-Waldeck Regiment.
  • They Also Served: Women with the Hessian Auxiliaries (1999). This previously-unpublished work concentrates on the "camp followers."
