War Department Collection of Revolutionary War Records 1629-1915
Record Group 93
In 1873 Secretary of War William Belknap purchased for the Federal Government the papers of Timothy Pickering, who had been a member of the Board of War, Adjutant General of the Continental Army, and Quartermaster General between 1777 and 1785; the papers of Samuel Hodgdon, Commissary General of Military Stores for several years during the Revolutionary War; miscellaneous contemporary papers; and some minor groups of records and individual items. Although the records span the period 1629-1915, the bulk of the information deals with the Revolutionary War period of 1775-83.
