PREFACE. 



When the weary traveler after a long journey has at 
length arrived at his destination, he lays down his burden 
for a while reflects upon the varying scenes through which he 
has just passed. Likewise the "Princes" are mindful of the 
privileges and privations of their forefathers, who were ever 
ready with a willing hand to preserve this nation from dan- 
ger, that it might enjoy prosperity and peat e. 

It is believed that this little volume will furnish inform- 
ation concerning the war record of the •• Princes " which ran 
be obtained in no other single publication extant, and in 
ing it before the public, we hope that no critic will be so unjust 
as to compare it with the vast and eloquent unwritten hisi 
of the " Princes. " While the author has spared no pains oj 
expense in order to obtain only that which is authentic and 
reliable, yet. perhaps, occasional errors of minor consequence 
may be found. Any one who may discover such will c 
a favor by sending any corrections or additions to the author 
ami publisher. We present this volume, however, with confi- 
dence, as we feel that records contained herein are thus pre- 
served which otherwise would be lost, and also rmnv 
••Princes" arc brought to notice who have hitherto been un- 
known. 

Deeds of daring, bravery and* devotion by "Ui forefi 
now ennoble the records of nearly every state, in which •

descendant should feel r natural pride, and it cannot but be 
prized asarecord of ancestral sacrifice by the generations which 
are to follow, when grandchildren shall cluster around th>- 
chair of the gray-haired volunteer and listen while he I 
more how he carried the -old flag," or the musket, at Gi 
burg; and when the venerable dame .shall resort to the old 
bureau, fragrant with sacred memories, and gaze again th: 
the mist, as a tear drops from the moistened eye, on that cher- 
ished blue coat worn by one who wont to battle with her 
blessing, and died joyfully that the nation might have a s< 
birth. 

That the rising generations of "Princes" may emulate 
the bravery, devotion and patriotism so characteristic of the 
lives of our forefathers, is the wish of 

The Author.

Notes on the Service of 1775. 



ARMS AND ACCOUTREMENTS.— At the special 
April session of the Legislature, when the first regiments were 
called out, it was enacted that the enlisted men should be fur- 
nished with good firearms belonging to the colon}', if they 

were unable to furnish themselves; and. if they found theil 
own arms, to be paid ten shillings for the use of such arms, 
and in case more arms should be required they were to be im- 
pressed from householders not enrolled. Ten shillings was t<» 
be awarded to all who offered guns, bayonets and cartouch 
boxes to the soldiers. It was also resolved at the same time 
that three thousand stand of arms be procured for the colony, of 
the following dimensions, to wit : " the length of the barrel, three 
feet ten inches; the diameter of the bore, from inside to inside, 
three-quarters of an inch; the length of the blade of the bayon- 
et, fourteen inches; the length of the socket, four inches and 
a quarter; that the barrels be of suitable thickness, with iron 
ramrods and a spring in the lowest loop to secure the ramrod, 
a good, substantial lock, and a good stock, well mounted with 
brass and tuarke 1 with the name or initial Inters of the makers 
name." Colony Records, Vol. XIV, p. 420. Officers woie 
swords or *' hangers," as then commonly called. 

SOLDIERS' RATION'S. At the May session, the ra- 
tions for the troops were fixed as follows : Three-fourths ol a 
pouu I of pork or one pound of beef, cue pound o\' bread or tl >ur, 
and three pints of beer t> each man per day: beef t<> be fresh 
two days in a week; also a half-pint of rice 01 a pint of Ii

meal, six ounces of butter and three pints of peas or beans 
each man per week. Soldiers on fatigue duty were to I 
lowed one gill of rum each per day, and at no other time. 
Milk, candles, soap, molasses, vinegar, coffee, chocolate, BUgar, 
tobacco, and vegetables in season, were to provided subji ct to 
the order of general and field officers. Afterthe troops became 
Continental, the rations as authorized by Congress were not as 
liberal, either in quantity or variety, as the Colony allowance.

UNIFORMS AND CAMP EQUIP AGE.— The troops of 

1775 were generally without uniforms. They marched in cit- 
izen's clothes, with blankets and knapsacks. A few exceptions 
are however noted, such as Captain Chester's Weathersfield 
Company, which was clothed -wholly in blue, turned up with 
red," and Captain Arnold's Company of Governor's Guards, 
New Haven, in Lexington Alarm. Individual officers provid- 
ed themselves with uniforms, but their rank was distinguis 
by different colored ribbons which they were directed to wear. 
Camp equipage consisted of tents or "marques" tor offi- 
cers, tents for soldiers, and tin and brass kettles, iron pots, fry- 
ing pans, wooden bowls, and quart cups for companj 
and ''messes." Each company was allowed one cart or \\

EXPLANATORY 



In compiling the foregoing records of the Civil 
these being all that it is possible to obtain at the pres I 
it has been a matter of no small importance to go ovei 
fully, page by page, more than one hundred volun s, 
ing from eight hundred to twelve hundred ; ig - • i 
eather therefrom these records. Many of the si 
are in such a confused condition that it is imj make 

use of them, while other states are just preparing foi 
tion their roster of soldiers who served in the I 
Army. Such is the case in South Carolina at this 

Nevertheless, due diligence has 1 n ■ lercised 

the benefit of our readers and the rising generations i 
war records of our forefathers.
