We recently received our 2,500th visit to the blog, a number that we’re quite proud of! We are very grateful to all of you who have visited and taken the time to read and comment. Thank you so much! The Battle of Long Island took place at the end of August, and we’re preparing to mark the anniversary of the battle, as well as the action in the days before and after, so stay tuned.
We are also going to be shuffling the personnel of the Maryland 400 team in the next few days. Daniel and Jeff will be leaving us to go back to school for the fall. Their work on the project has been excellent and they will be missed. However, we will be adding a new team member, Emily Huebner. You’ll get to meet her soon.
This project is being generously supported by the Maryland Military Department, Adjutant General James A. Adkins, the Maryland Military Historical Society, Washington College, and the Moss Family Foundation. If you like the work that has been done so far and would like to support further research, please make a donation to the Friends of the Maryland State Archives. When you donate, you can indicate your support for Revolutionary War research. Thank you all for your continued support of the Maryland 400 research!
Congratulations to all of the summer research staff. You should be very proud of your accomplishments. Many of these soldiers are completely unknown to history and the work you have done/are doing is important.
