This guide covers military and war events prior to the U.S. Revolutionary period - mostly that took place in area now known as the State of Connecticut. The concept of military is loosely applied.
The Connecticut State Library recognizes language can be problematic, especially historic language. Historic writings often include language that would be considered charged and/or offensive today. We often look to standards within librarianship. Researching this time period often requires variation in spelling and terms (ex. wars or warres).
Research on this topic will, most likely, involve extensive use of our History & Genealogy resources, as well as Archives and federal documents. See sure to check our general guides, as that information will not be repeated here.
These are only a few examples.
Often online access is available through our library catalog - scroll down for links.
Much of the information will be in our secured collections. Contacting the History & Genealogy Unit is recommended.
