History

In 1776, the British formed a treaty with the duke of Brunswick and other minor German princes that allowed the hiring of German mercenaries to bolster the British Army in North America. These German Auxiliaries muster rolls document the German regiments employed by the British to fight in the American Revolutionary War. England would pay the German princes annual subsidies, as well as additional fees, for wounded and killed soldiers. All together, approximately 30,000 men came to America from Germany and fought for the British in virtually every major campaign in the war.

Collection Scope and Content Note

This collection is comprised of seventy muster rolls and 15 related letters and documents of the German regiments employed by the British to fight in the American Revolutionary War. Most of the rolls are from 1781 and 1783 and include lists for soldiers captured at Yorktown. The rolls contain details such as the rank and names of the Hessians, casualties, and remarks, such as "sick in the Barracks." These rolls are certified by British commanding officers.

The rosters list the following regiments:
  • Anhalt Zerbst army under Riedesel, Regiment Prinz Friedrich, Grenadier Battalion von Mengen, Regiment von Riedesel, Regiment von Specht.

  • Waldeck. Third Regiment, Company von Alberti, Company von Horn, Company von Penzel.

In addition to muster rolls is a copy of the treaty executed in 1776 between the Duke of Brunswick and George III for hiring German mercenaries. Also enclosed is a barrack account for the first regiment of Anspach troops during the winter of 1777-1778; several receipts, including three accounts submitted to the Great Britain Army Victualing Office (1786); an account of payments to foreign troops in America; and a statement from a surgeon named Pralle of the Bath infantry, certifying that several men belonged to Major General de Rhetz' regiment (1781).
