General Orders, Rhode Island: December 1776-January 1778, Don N. Hagist


3 General Orders, Rhode Island: December 1776-January 1778
Don N. Hagist
(2001), 2007, 5x8, paper, 170 pp, Heritage Books
Only a few British army orderly books from the American Revolution survive. The document that is presented here has never been published and is the only orderly book known to exist containing British general orders given in Rhode Island. On December 8, 1776, a British army and naval force seized the largest island in Narragansett Bay because of its strategic value (proximity to Boston and to the coastal shipping lanes). The orders address preparations for landing and setting up military operations as well as dealing with problems of discipline, procurement of provisions, interactions with the local population, skirmishes with the Americans, exchange of prisoners, etc. An informative introduction and a chronology of military actions set the stage for the rest of this work. The orders make up the main part of the text, followed by 2 interesting appendices: Courts Martial held in RI in 1777, and documents related to the capture of General Prescott. Mr. Hagist has done extensive research on the British occupation of RI, and on British military organization.

The Hessian Occupation of Newport and Rhode Island, 1776-1779, Walter K. Schroder


11 The Hessian Occupation of Newport and Rhode Island, 1776-1779
Walter K. Schroder
(2005), 2006, 5x8, paper, index, 222 pp, Heritage Books
Who were the Hessians? Where did they come from? Were all Hessians truly Hessians? Were they mercenaries or auxiliary troops of the British? This well-researched historical narrative answers these questions and more as it vividly portrays the events of the Rhode Island campaign, which lasted from December 8, 1776 to October 25, 1779. Information gleaned from source diaries and unit journals, originally recorded in German, provide a wealth of insight into the daily life of the German soldiers who were committed to the Rhode Island campaign. In light of modern travel and technology, it is difficult to imagine the perilous two-month journey across the Atlantic to America that was just the beginning of the hardships, dangers, and fears to be experienced by these eighteenth-century German soldiers. The 1776 occupation of Newport, troop movements, raids and incursions, the Treaty of Paris, the 1778 siege of Newport, the Battle of Rhode Island, and much more are examined in detail. A bibliography and an index add to the value of this work.
