American Revolution Strength Returns for 1777 in the New York Public Library Digital Collection.

1st NH Return

While doing a bit of Google-Fu on the Internet, I found that there were several strength returns for American units in the 1777 Northern Campaign among the New York Public Library’s Digital Collection. I have never seen most of these referenced in a secondary source, so they were quite a find. Here are the ones that I could find:

John Ashley’s (1st Berkshire Massachusetts) Militia Regiment (July 1777): http://digitalcollections.nypl.org/items/bad6720b-4701-a00b-e040-e00a18067aa1 (This is a very rare militia unit strength return)

1st New Hampshire Regiment (July 1777): http://digitalcollections.nypl.org/items/bad6720b-470b-a00b-e040-e00a18067aa1

3rd New Hampshire Regiment (July 1777): http://digitalcollections.nypl.org/items/bad6720b-4768-a00b-e040-e00a18067aa1

(the first regiment is van Schaick’s 1st New York Regiment – the writing is not very clear, but the comments below make it clear as to which unit it is as van Schaick had been sent to Tyron County to raise the militia.)
