NAMES OF GENERAL WASHINGTON'S AIDS-DE-CAMP

DURING THE REVOLUTION.

This list is drawn from the Orderly Book, and is probably incomplete. A part of General Washington's Orderly Book, including the year 1778, has been lost, and it is believed that John Fitzgerald, and possibly others, were appointed aids during that time. The dates indicate the days on which the names and rank of the aids were proclaimed in the general orders. The secretaries were likewise aids-de-camp.
