This file consists of miscellaneous items related to the American Revolutionary
War. In the Correspondence section are letters written by unknown or lesser known
individuals who were involved in the war or lived during that time period
(1775-1783). In the Manuscripts section are two lengthy manuscripts written by
unidentified Englishmen, one in favor of the revolution and the other opposed.
Researchers should note that the Andre De Coppet Collection contains many other
materials related to the Revolutionary War, which are filed under the names of
specific authors and correspondents; this general "Revolutionary War" file is
simply for the benefit of grouping items which might otherwise be overlooked.
