Overview

The manuscripts in this collection provide insight into the period before Washington took command of the patriot forces. There is important military history and information, as well as material on local government in Massachusetts and on Shays's Rebellion. When linked with the papers of General Henry Knox and General Benjamin Lincoln, which are part of this series, scholars will have access to the manuscripts of three Massachusetts generals who played a major role in the American Revolution.

Titles from the Massachusetts Historical Society Collections may be purchased by individual reel.
