Historical Background

This muster roll enlisted men from the area around Groton, Massachusetts. Each was required to provide the basics of personal battlefield supplies such as firearms and ammunition, and a canteen. This printed document enlisted a company for at least six months. Some of the men listed, including Jenkins, Kemp, and Russell, had responded to the Lexington alarm on April 19, 1775.
