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.
