Overview

Organized by campaign, regiment, and company, these rosters give the names of soldiers and officers and their rank, dates of enlistment and discharge, and occasional additional data such as date of death. "The majority of the rolls printed in this volume...are from [the] Adams Papers in the State Library. In addition there are rolls from the series lettered "War", 10, 11, 12, among the bound volumes of archives in the State Library, a number from the archives of the Connecticut Historical Society, a few from private sources, and several from the New York Historical Society's Collections for 1891. The rolls of several companies which served in 1764 are given in an appendix. While these companies were not, strictly speaking, participants in the French and Indian War, their service was a result of that war. The war ended with the treaty of peace signed in 1763. The campaign of the following year was directed against the Indians who continued to create disturbance after the signing of the treaty of peace by their allies the French. A second appendix contains some information relating to the years 1755-1757 which has come to light since the previous volume was issued....As stated in the previous volume these original rolls were found...in the old Seymour house in Hartford....For convenience of reference all names which appeared in the index to the preceding volume are in the index to this volume, preceded by a star." This work was first published as the Collections of the Connecticut Historical Society, Volume X. A full name index adds to the value of this work.
