About this Item
Broadside, 12 x 7 1/2 inches. Old folds, mild toning. Very good. In frame. Appears to be docketed on verso, but not examined outside frame. A manuscript roll-call for a company of Maine military personnel organized to participate in the French and Indian War. The document lists over seventy names of regulars in two columns, plus an additional dozen names under "The Alarm List," essentially a reserve list of soldiers appointed to defend the homefront. Below the Alarm List is the following text: "The above is a True & Perfect list of all the soldiers in the Train'd band & Alarm List from sixteen years old to sixty as far as has come to my knowledge. Attest, Daniel Emery jun. Clerk und. Oath." The Emery family supplied seven members of this list of officers and soldiers, with others, such as the Furbush, Ferguson, and Wamouth families, also providing more than one man for the army. Several names are crossed out, about half of which belong to a family supplying more than one member to the list. Most of the men on the Alarm List are also identified by profession, such as deacon, miller, or sailor, among others. Such lists of colonial American military personnel for the French and Indian War are exceedingly rare in the market. An important colonial Maine and military document. Seller Inventory # WRCAM51214
