Orderly Books

During the period of the American Revolution, most regiments, garrisons and armies recorded the orders issued to the troops in the form of an orderly book.

These books were used to record information on such things as promotions, duty rotation, cantonments, work details, marching orders, embarkations, court martial results, etc.

Although all Loyalist units presumably kept such books, only a few have survived or are known of today. Below is a selection from some of these books.
