Report of the guards mounted by the American Light Infantry, September 28th, 1782.

[blocks in formation]

Went the rounds, and found them in good order.


Offi. Day.
September 29th, 1782.
To Colonel Samuel B. Webb, Commander Light Infantry.

Remarks of the Inspector General on Colonel Webb's Regiment.

This regiment is in seven companies, and is too weak to form a battalion ; the only fault I find with it is being in the best order of any I have yet seen at the first review. The arms are really a model for an army. The regiment marches perfectly, and has a military air.

Colonel Webb deserves particular credit for the superior order in which he has kept his regiment.

Extract from the Report.


Aide De Camp. Headquarters, September 220, 1779.

First Order to 3d Conn't Reg't after Release as Prisoner of War.

REGIMENTAL ORDERS, 7th Feb’y, 1781. It is with singular satisfaction the Colonel has it in his power again to join his Reg't, the Honor and welfare of which has always been near his Heart. He takes the first opportunity of returning his most sincere thanks to the officers for the great care they have taken in supporting a Discipline, which has done Honor to themselves & to the Regiment at large, & in which he thinks himself an equal sharer. The cheerfulness with which the Soldiers have endured their many unavoidable hardships merits the approbation & Thanks of their officers and their Country.

He most earnestly recommends to officers a steady and constant attention to the Discipline of the Regiment. As the time is fast approaching when we shall again take the Field, let us exert ourselves that our Regiment may appear in superior order. To accomplish this, nothing is more absolutely necessary than the strictest attention by officers to the internal police of the Reg't—they must be answerable that the non-commissioned do their Duty, and that they are properly supported in the Execution of it. The Col. flatters himself the Soldiers will continue to behave in a manner becoming the characters of men who are exerting themselves in support of everything dear to freemen; they will continue to recollect they are not mercenaries fighting for a foreign Prince, or for extent of Dominion, but for that which is dearer than lifetheir Liberty. At the end of the War we trust a grateful Country will honorably reward their noble exertions, and hereafter they will be handed down to future generations as men who have delivered themselves and their Posterity from tyranny oppression and the vilest servitude.
