The Record of Connecticut Men in the Military and Naval Service During the War of the Revolution, 1775-1783. Henry P. Johnston, ed. . (1889)
This imposing volume is the starting point for researching Connecticut's participation in the American Revolution. The volume covers almost all primary sources pertaining to Connecticut men in the Revolution which were still extant at the time of the book's original publication in 1889, including original minutes of the General Assembly and Governor's office, original rolls, pay rolls, accounts, diaries, maps, the papers of George Washington and Connecticut Revolutionary governor John Trumbull, and numerous other collections both privately and publicly held. The personnel records are arranged by military unit and thereunder by date and rank, commencing with the men who volunteered in response to the Lexington Alarm of 1775 and continuing with Connecticut troops in the Continental Army (including the regiments of the Connecticut Line), state troops or levies, the Connecticut militia, Connecticut naval units, and concluding with miscellaneous rolls and pension lists. Supplementing the rosters themselves are lists of Connecticut pensioners found in the 1818 and 1840 U.S. pension lists.
