Southern Campaigns American Revolution Pension Statements and RostersENLISTMENTS, MUSTER ROLLS, AND PAY ROLLS OF GEN. PULASKI’S LEGIONMARCH 1779 TO NOVEMBER 1780Transcribed and annotated by C. Leon Harris. Revised 17 Sep 2016.INTRODUCTIONKazimierz (or Casimir) Pulaski, born in Poland on 4 Mar 1747, is one of the most celebratedfigures of the American Revolutionary War. After arriving at Boston in July 1777 and serving as Gen.Washington’s Aide-de-Camp at the Battle of Brandywine, he quickly won the attention of Congress,which commissioned him a Brigadier General and Commander of the Horse. (See time line below.) On28 March 1778 Congress authorized Pulaski to raise an independent legion – a force comprising bothcavalry and infantry. Pulaski recruited first in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and New York and then filledout the ranks in Baltimore with many Hessian prisoners and deserters. The present transcription listsmany of the soldiers’ names as recorded in their enlistment oaths, muster rolls, and payrolls, as found atFold3.com beginning with image https://www.fold3.com/image/9682620. These rolls encompass thecrucial period from March 1779, when the Legion left Pennsylvania for South Carolina, until after thesiege of Savannah in October 1779, where Pulaski was killed and the Legion depleted.The following table showing the date and place of each roster and the number of troops chroniclethe depletion of the ranks by discharges, desertion and casualties.FIRST TROOP OF LIGHT DRAGOONS (LANCERS)Capt.

In these records the spellings of names are particularly difficult. Some are German names writtenin English as they sounded to a Frenchman. Many names appear on more than one roster with differentspellings, and some officers even signed their own names with two different spellings. In doubtful cases Ihave tried to give more likely spellings in brackets. I have also added the number of any pension orbounty-land applications, as well as the letter B to indicate soldiers recruited at Baltimore according to alist published by Spencer (1918).The pages I have transcribed are rearranged chronologically rather than in the sequence found atFold3.com. Some pages in the file are not transcribed here because they are redundant. In addition I haveelected not to transcribe the following pages that do not list soldiers’ names:“Account of Money paid Count Pulaskie’s Legion” 7 May 1778 - 4 March 1779“Monies paid Gen’l Count Pulaski on Acc’t of his Legion by the Board of War” 9 May - 22 Oct 1778“A General Account of the Expences Made by General Count Pulaski’s for his Legion” 1778“Cash advanced by the payment of the Board of War & adv’d to Count Pulaski for the use of his Legion”The following two lists suggest that the transcribed rosters may not include all those in theLegion.Pension applicants who apparently served in Pulaski’s Legion but are not on the transcribed rolls:Joseph Bertoulin R802James Blackburn S39197James Busby W2995Paul Louis Celoron X941: Aide-de-Camp of Gen.
