Muster Roll

Roots to the Revolution
The Valley Forge Muster Roll Project has made it's digital debut! During the American Revolution the Continental Army used monthly muster rolls prepared at the company level to track the army's strength. Each roll contains names, ranks, dates of enlistment, and other notes on soldiers' assignments, activities, or conditions. These records are perhaps the most reliable method to track the service of Revolutionary War soldiers.

Today you can search through the Muster Roll for soldiers by their last name, state, or regiment. Visit the NEW Muster Roll website for details, and let the search begin!

Following the Civil War, a patriotic organization worked to raise funds to purchase the Isaac Potts house as an historic site. By the 1880's, the house was open to the public, followed by the establishment of Valley Forge State Park in 1893.
