xi Acknowledgments I had a great deal of help in completing this compendium. One of the most rewarding aspects of this project was learning what a giving and supportive community of researchers exists regarding the British Army during the period of the American Revolution.Todd Braisted provided information about those men who served as provincial officers, as well as other links and leads. John Houlding was extremely gracious in responding to a variety of inquiries and pleas for assistance. Paul Pace provided a great deal of information about the officers who had also served in the 42nd (Royal Highland) Regiment of Foot. Eric Schnitzer was helpful in providing details about some of the officers who served in General John Burgoyne’s campaign. Don Hagist provided a great deal of assistance and support throughout. Ryan Gale and John Nietz assisted with the coats of arms.T.J.Wendel helped me to search for materials at the University of Virginia. Bernie Kazwick provided several excellent leads. Michael Barrett was instrumental in digging up records for me at the National Archives in Kew, England; without his assistance, this book would never have been completed.This is a better and more complete piece of scholarship because of the assistance of these individuals. Thank you also to the staffs of the Archives of the Lloyds of London , the William Clements Library at the University of Michigan, the Newberry Library of Chicago, the Illinois State Historical Society, and the Latter-Day Saints Family History Center in Wilmette, Illinois.
