Quantity in Basket: None
Connecticut Historical Society. Paperback, two volumes, first published in 1901 and reprinted here in 1997, as new, each volume with index, 375 + 489 pp. The publisher writes: These two related volumes were originally published as Volumes VIII and XII, respectively, of Collections of the Connecticut Historical Society and are here reprinted as a unit. Together they contain all of the Revolutionary War service records in the custody of the Connecticut Historical Society that do not duplicate the records published in The Record of Connecticut Men in the Military and Naval Service During the War of the Revolution, 1775-1783. While at least half of the records in Volume I pertain to militia or naval units, almost all of those in the longer Volume II have to do with the Connecticut Line, 1777-1783. In the case of Volume I, most of the rosters identify soldiers by company, name, rank, dates of service, and, sometimes, campaigns. The second volume's great genealogical value--and the reason why the Society opted to issue it as a sequel--is associated with its comprehensive roster of the thousands of soldiers of the Connecticut Line who served in the Revolution. Among other things, Volume II identifies the hometown or place of birth of each man who served in the Connecticut Line. Each volume in this set is completely indexed, and the two volumes together contain nearly 30,000 references to Connecticut soldiers of the Revolutionary era. [9217-C]
