Published Orderly Books Bibliography
© 1999 -- 2021 - John K. Robertson and Bob McDonald
The following bibliography specifies all Continental Army orderly books which the site compilers have found to have been published. These are presented in standard bibliographic format, alphabetically arranged based on title or editor name, the prefix numbers being footnote links from the “state” pages. In addition, each published book citation is followed by a cross referencing to the M&R number assigned within this Index and the unit identification for the book, the latter frequently not being evident from the published title.
As is evident from the following citations, the large majority of these orderly books were published many years ago, a significant proportion dating from the period of the centennial observation of the American Revolution. In addition, a significant majority of the books were published within historical journals and “magazines” of the period which are now no longer being published. Thus, interested students will find that acquiring copies of many of these books would seem to present something of a challenge. Without doubt, the most expedient manner in which to access such copies, however, is through use of the interlibrary loan system. In many cases, an application made at the reader’s local library, accompanied by a very minimal filing fee, will yield a photocopy of the desired “article” from a university or other institutional holding library. Only rarely are these copies literally a “loan", the copies typically being made for the applicant’s permanent possession. In addition, copying fees and time charges are typically waived. Therefore, while many of the listed books appeared in now arcane publications, copies can be obtained with surprising ease and very minimal expense. It should be expected, however, that the interlibrary loan system will not be able to provide copies of all the listed books, and that more extensive searching will be required in some cases. This is particularly the case with books that appeared in especially minor or rare journals. In addition, a small minority of these orderly books appear within quite lengthy published book format, such as the classic series of Tallmadge books of the 4th and 2d New York Regiments (see Lauber, Almon W., ed.) In such cases, these “hard-bound” published volumes can be themselves obtained through interlibrary loan for short-term usage and can be personally photocopied.
