American Revolution

The bulk of this collection consists of records of the Council of Safety, whose function it was to handle the day to day affairs of Connecticut's wartime government; records of the Commissary department which was responsible for providing food and equipment for the soldiers; records of the Committee of Pay-Table which paid for supplies and services; the commissary and paymaster records of the Third Regiment, Connecticut Line; orderly books, journals and correspondence describing activities of Connecticut persons during the Revolution. Not all of the manuscripts have been digitized. Additional materials are from related collections that have been suggested for use in teaching about the Revolution using primary resources. A grant from the National Historical Publications and Records Commission funded digitization of this collection.
