Preservation of the 18-th Century Orderly Books

The Revolutionary War and the French and Indian Wars are documented from the field in 37 pocket-sized books that record provisioning, duty rotations, promotions, marching orders, leave time, courts martial and other disciplinary actions, passwords and counter-signs, and the soldiers' participation in engagements and battles. The books will be conserved to embrittled paper, and damage from insects, mold, and water. Each repaired volume will be rehoused in a custom-made box.
