Historical Register of Officers, of the Continental Army During the War of the Revolution, April 1775 to December 1783; By Francis B. Heitman; 698 pp.; Paperback; Published: 1914, 1932; Reprinted: 2008; ISBN: 9780806301761; Item # CF2680D
This is the standard reference work on the officers of the Revolutionary War, containing an alphabetically arranged list, with service records, of 14,000 officers of the Continental Army, including many officers of the Militia and State Troops who served during the Revolution. The information given includes the soldier's rank, dates of service, when and where wounded, taken prisoner, exchanged, or killed, etc., with the name of the state in which service was rendered and a designation of company and command.
Some of the data was not available from official records, so other reliable sources of information were consulted and data added therefrom in order to complete the service record of each officer. Some 6,000 names not recorded in the earlier edition of 1893 were added and a great many records revised and completed for the last published edition of 1914. Also includes a list of French officers who served in the U.S. Army, as well as alphabetical and chronological lists of battles and skirmishes.
". . . This is the best and basic source for identification of Revolutionary War officers. "--The Virginia Genealogist (Jan.-March 1974).
