Excerpt from Delaware Archives, Vol. 4 The Public Archives Commission of Delaware herewith submits volumes four and five of the Military Series of Delaware Archives. These volumes contain lists, substantially full and complete, of the officers and men who represented this State in the second war with England, commonly called the War of 1812, which memorable contest sealed a peace between the United States and the Mother Country which has lasted for over one hundred years. In addition to the Muster and Pay rolls, many letters, documents and state papers pertinent and interesting have been included in the publication. When the work of collecting and compiling these records was begun the State Archives contained no Muster or Pay rolls. A number of these papers were found in the War Department at Washington, but the greater number in private possession. The Commission believes that in the arduous work of collecting and publishing these records it has rendered important service to the State. Through the generosity of Mr. Septimus E. Nivin, of Landenberg, Pa., the E. I. duPont de Nemours Co. and others, who had these records in their possession, the State now owns the original papers that attest Delawares great service in this war. Foot notes indicate the source of the papers not in the Archives of the State. All papers marked "duPont Hall of Records" are now in the possession of the State. Explanatory. It was found advisable to publish Volumes IV and V, Delaware Archives Military Series, in advance of Volume III. The latter is now in course of preparation, and will contain supplementary Revolutionary matter. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
