Military Records

Revolutionary War Service Records

Published service records were created for Connecticut men in the Revolution. This work has been digitized and is linked below. Also check the indexes which are linked below to the "Connecticut Archives" under the topics Militia and Revolutionary War. Family Search has recently digitized microfilm of the original records. These are available at a Family History Center or Affiliate Library. 

For additional information please see our Research Guide to Revolutionary War Sources at the Connecticut State Library that is available as a pdf below.

Revolutionary War pension records are also available. Pensions authorized by the Federal Government have been digitized and are online through the HeritageQuest database. An index to pensions held in the CT State Archives has also been created. Historic military records can also be found through the Fold3 website. The Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) also have a wonderful collection of records on their website. A search by name brings up digitized original records, including the Revolutionary War Series and other Connecticut records from their collection.
