APPENDIX

A


REGISTER OF MEDICAL OFFICERS WHO SERVED TO THE CLOSE OF THE REVOLUTION AND WERE DISCHARGED IN 1783.


As it is impossible at this date to ascertain the names of all the medical officers who served during the Revolutionary war, those only are given in the following table who are known to have been honorably discharged at the termination of hostilities. The list has been obtained from Force's American Archives, from pension returns and Revolutionary muster rolls. The roster of hospital surgeons is believed to be very nearly complete; that of the regimental medical officers is necessarily imperfect from lack of data to ascertain to what regiments many officers were attached, from the want of uniformity in the nomenclature of regiments, and from the fact that during the last year of the war many officers availed themselves of the indefinite furlough granted to all officers, and were never discharged at all.

The hospital officers are arranged according to rank, those attached to regiments by states.
