This microform collection of Revolutionary War orderly books provides an authentic look at military life during the Revolutionary War--from the Battle of Bunker Hill in 1775 to orders for building housing for the troops in 1783.

The orderly books in this collection have been selected from manuscript collections at the Massachusetts Historical Society. They are arranged by regimental name or number and filmed in sequence. Included are regiments from Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Connecticut, and Rhode Island, along with Continental Army Artillery regiments, Continental Army Headquarters regiments, British Army regiments, and British Marine regiments.

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