Research In Colonial & United States Wars

From Earliest to 1865

The military history of the Colonial America and then the United States spans over three centuries. During that time, the United States evolved from civilian frontiersmen, armed for hunting and basic survival in the wilderness, to a new nation fighting the British Empire for independence, through a Civil War that pited brother against brother, to a world superpower in the late 20th century and early 21st century.There was many early conflicts dating from the times of the first colonist. Most if not all wars and conflicts involved Indians, English, French and the Spanish. See Also Research in Military Records

At least the remnants of records exist for every war that the colonies and states were involved in; but, as with other records maintained in the United States during the first centuries of its existence, there is little uniformity of content or style in those records.
