“The Road to Independence: Researching the Revolutionary War”

Michael L. Strauss

Categories: RR, RL

Talk Abstract:
Known alternatively as the War for Independence fought between 1775-1783, it arose from tensions between England and her young upstart colonies. Violence would erupt on a Spring morning in Lexington, Massachusetts with the “Shot heard around the world” sounding the beginning of the war. Records of it include service files, pensions, bounty land warrants, loyalists, and Hessian records covering the war.
