During the American Revolution, the Delaware Regiment established a record for military discipline, efficiency, and dependability on the battlefield. The regiment’s characteristics and prowess in combat in many ways reflected developments within the Continental Army as that force became the professionalized military organization General Washington sought to create during the course of the war. This presentation will offer some of the preliminary findings of a new study of this unit, and will describe some of the distinctive features of the Delaware Regiment and its service during the War for American Independence.
