The Fifth Series and the first two volumes of the Sixth Series are dedicated almost exclusively to the officers and soldiers of the Revolutionary War. Many of the muster rolls published in volumes 2, 10, 11, 13, 14 and 15 of the Second Series and volume 23 of the Third Series of the published Pennsylvania Archives were found to be riddled with errors and omissions when compared with original documents. As a result the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania decided to republish the muster rolls with the corrections and additions in the Fifth Series and volumes 1 and 2 of the Sixth Series of the published Pennsylvania Archives. Sources for this effort included the Historical Society of Pennsylvania, Division of Public Records, Pennsylvania State Library, Pennsylvania Magazine of History and Biography and the National Archives.

This CD contains all 8 volumes of the Fifth Series and the first two volumes of the Sixth Series of the published Pennsylvania Archives. These volumes represent a unique record of Pennsylvanians who served in the Revolutionary War. Included are the muster and general rolls of the officers and soldiers who served from Pennsylvania along with brief regimental histories and officers’ correspondence. Specifically:
