These bibliographies were originally compiled for inclusion in the US ARMY CENTER OF MILITARY HISTORY's publication "The Continental Army" (1983). Due to limitations of space, only part of each bibliography were published. The bibliographies have been maintained by the Center and are subjected to continuous revision and updating. The versions offered here are considerably longer than the original publication's versions.

has a dual mission: collecting, researching, editing and publishing the
universally acclaimed and well reviewed Documentary History of the
First Federal Congress, l789-l791, and serving as a research center on

The goal of this site is to provide an online
cross-referenced index of all surviving orderly books of the Continental Army

resources. Its goal is to present a data base for researchers of the
“micro-history” of the Continental Army which can be found in no other single
source and which provides cross-referencing options to assist in research focus
on particular units, on particular campaign theaters and time periods, and on
institutions holding within their collections specific manuscript books.
The documents contained in this mini-edition, maintained by
the Model Editions Partnership, comprise
the critical period of Greene's campaign in the South--19 January 1781 through
15 February 1781. Starting with the battle of Cowpens, a pivotal battle in the
war in the South, they highlight what has become known as the "Race to the
Dan" as the British general, Lord Cornwallis, used all his resources to
attempt to overtake and destroy Greene's army as the Americans retreated across
the Dan River toward safety and succor in Virginia.
The Papers of George Washington is a grant-funded
project. It was established in 1969 at the University of Virginia, under the joint
auspices of the University and the Mount
Vernon Ladies' Association of the Union, to publish a complete edition of
Washington's correspondence. DLAR has all the current editions of this project
in the our holdings. Not every letter is searchable online, but some
items are at the above website.
Slavery was a crucial issue for the Founders. By collecting
and publishing here in one volume substantial documentation on the issue of
slavery during the debate over the ratification of the Constitution, it is
hoped that readers will gain a deeper appreciation of the founding
generation--slaveholders, opponents of slavery, and slaves--as it grappled with
its seemingly insoluble moral, social, and economic dilemma. Many of the
documents are taken from the files of or have been published in The
Documentary History of the Ratification of the Constitution and the Bill of
Rights, 1787-1791, published by the State
Historical Society of Wisconsin and maintained by the Model Editions Partnership.
