Summary
Orderly book, 20 January-22 August 1777, of Captain John Belfield's Troop, alson known as 6th Troop, 1st Regiment, Continental Light Dragoons, containing copies of general, regimental, brigade, and after orders issued to the troop. Orders pertain to court-martials, uniforms, appointments of officers of the day, supply requisitions, and various administrative matters. During the period covered by this volume, the company initially was located in Morristown, New Jersey, then moved south to Bucks County, Pennsylvania. Although a notation on the inside front cover identifies the volume as "Sarjeant Long's Orderly Book," existing muster rolls and payrolls for Belfield's troop do not list his name. A notation on the inside back cover identifies the volume as "Orderly Book for Capt. John Belfield's Troop for the year 1777."
