Collections of Revolutionary War artifacts seldom contain the history of individual items. Who used it? Where was it used? That information is lost. A Sketch of the Virginia Soldier in the Revolution identifies which uniforms and equipment were used by reviewing the documentary evidence. Military records, newspapers, journals and letters provided data from which a "sketch" of the soldier's appearance was drawn. Rather than create a generic soldier, this work concentrates on the infantryman from Virginia. After determining what equipment was used by the Virginians, examples are presente... View more info

Lieutenant Colonel Banastre Tarleton is one of the most infamous figures in the annals of American Revolutionary War history. His British Legion, popularly known as the “Green Horse” or “Tarleton’s Legion,” was an extremely mobile military formation, consisting of both cavalry and light infantry. It participated in most of the major engagements fought in the Southern theater and its Loyalist members committed frequent excesses on and off the battlefield. For Tarleton, suppressing the rebellion was a “disagreeable exertion of authority.” To the Rebels,... View more info

In his final book, the late Mr. Lucier takes readers through the final months of the key year, 1776, to the end of January 1777. Much is happening during this time as Washington, Howe, Gates, Clinton, Lee, and Putnam scheme battle plans; British and American troops maneuver for position and struggle for victory; German auxiliary troops support the British efforts; the Empress of Russia considers siding with the British and the colonists hope to convince France to join the American side; colonial agitators publish correspondence in American newspapers to rouse local support; loyalists are ident...

Notes from a British Museum

About one-third of the soldiers employed by the British against the revolutionary American colonists in the late 1770s and early 1780s were Germans. The greatest number of these Germans were the auxiliaries from six minor states and they were collectively referred to as Hessians, even though not all were from Hesse. Many Germans also served in the ranks of the English army, or even in Loyalist units. The slant is more towards military activities in Canada than in the American colonies. The information is biased towards the Germans in Canada for two reasons; General Haldimand, who commanded pri... View more info

A largely unexploited source of information on life in colonial America is to be found in the diaries of those German soldiers who came to America as the so-called Hessians during the American Revolutionary War. Of all the diaries, that of Philipp Waldeck, chaplain of the 3rd English-Waldeck Regiment, contains the most thorough and all-encompassing view of life in America. His descriptions are interesting, detailed, and on a wide variety of subjects: churches, costumes, customs, economics, fishing, farming, Indians, religion, schools, slavery, wildlife, and nature in general. Mr. Burgoyne is ... View more info

In the closing days of 1776, the future looked gloomy for the American colonists; their Revolution was in dire straits. The remnants of the American army in Pennsylvania, led by General George Washington, were fading away. Across the Delaware River, the English forces had gone into winter quarters and were awaiting the start of a final campaign in the spring of the coming year, when they would crush any remaining American force. A brigade of Hessian hirelings was stationed at the most exposed English outpost at Trenton; their commander was Hessian colonel Johann Gottlieb Rall, hero of White Pl... View more info

The two diaries contained in this volume were written by Lieutenant Jakob Piel of the Hesse-Cassel von Lossberg Regiment and Captain Andreas Wiederhold of the Hesse-Cassel von Knyphausen Regiment. Their careers in America paralleled each other for a part of the war: they were both members of Colonel Johann Rall's Brigade which suffered a humiliating defeat at Trenton, and both set sail from New York to Canada in 1779 in a fleet which lost ships not only to hurricanes but also to American privateers, and which did not reach Canada until the following year. Thus, the book's title: Defeat (at Tre... View more info

Letters (1776-1783) from 26 men, most of them officers of the Hesse-Hanau Hereditary Prince Regiment, have been translated from the German into English by Mr. Burgoyne. The prince of the title was the Count of Hanau. He ruled over Hesse-Hanau on the Rhine River and sent a total of 2,257 men to support the English war effort in North America. (He would later become Wilhelm IX, Landgrave of Hesse-Cassel, upon the death of his father.) Most of these letters serve as reports on the troops' activities and situations such as food supply problems, deserters and their punishments, illnesses, recommend... View more info

The order book is an excellent source of information on promotions and transfers throughout the Hessian army, and provides a picture of the daily life in an infantry regiment. It also reveals detailed accounts of battle plans, drill instructions, disciplinary actions, and general procedures, and follows the Revolutionary War from the Hessian perspective. Many well known British and Hessian commanders are named in the orders, in addition to the lesser officers who were the real backbone of this rugged, disciplined force. The Mirbach Regiment was part of the 1st Division of Hesse-Cassel troops w... View more info

By the late eighteenth century, continental armies had adopted a unit comprised of men who were familiar with nature, lightly armed, and able to move quickly. They were also excellent marksmen. To fill the ranks of these units, foresters-jaegers in German, chasseurs in French-were recruited and gave the name of their profession to the units: they were jaegers. Bruce Burgoyne's translation was made from a German language document in the archives of the Morristown National Historical Park, Morristown, New Jersey. Where the information was readily available, Mr. Burgoyne added name and unit ident... View more info

Six German states furnished troops to Britain to serve in America during the Revolutionary War. Those states were Hesse-Cassel, Hesse-Hanau, Brunswick, Waldeck, Ansbach-Bayreuth, and Anhalt-Zerbst. By far the largest contingent was provided by Hesse-Cassel, and all the troops were commonly called Hessians. This translation was made from a copy of the Platte Grenadier Battalion Journal in the Lidgerwood Collection at the Morristown National Historical Park in Morristown, New Jersey.

The Valiant Died is a study of the Battle of Eutaw Springs. It examines the events of the British Southern Campaign in the American Revolution that led up to the battle, as well as the battle's aftermath and its impact on the British surrender at Yorktown. More than thirty maps by John Robertson illustrate the major battles in the south and the complicated movements of Lord Cornwallis and Major General Nathanael Greene in their cat-and-mouse quest for control of the southern colonies. Greene's strategy and leadership is highlighted in this book. Other special features include military historie... View more info
