Collection Scope and Content Note
Show all series level scope and content notes
This collection is made up of materials related to Henry James Young's research on American loyalists' military service during the Revolutionary War. A series of several thousand index cards, arranged by regiment and then alphabetically, consists primarily of lists of source materials related to individual loyalist soldiers, based on Young's work in British, Canadian, and U.S. archives. The cards frequently include synopses of the original documents and, less frequently, additional biographical information. A manuscript index of names is also present. The remainder of the collection is comprised of Young's research notes and photocopies of primary source materials.
