I am still working on the American Civil War renames, but I did some of the initial renames for the American Revolution as well...
units changed designations as the war went on, with different authorizations and enlistments periods, going between militia, state and continental forces.
I need to do more research, initially it looks like the 24th was a state militia unit of some name on April 23, 1775, became the 24th in June 1775, then became for a short time the 17th Regiment of Foot, also in 1775.the 12th Continental Regiment in 1776, and disbanded in 1777
based on what you have in his profile, and what we have so far with Battle of Bunker Hill on June 17, 1775 meaning without an exact date for militia/continental service change the correct unit is
[[Category: 24th Massachusetts Bay Provincial Regiment (1775), Continental Army, American Revolution]]
For the [[Category: Battle of Bunker Hill]] many of the unit/categories listed as being there were not formed until 1777, two years after the battle, so I need to look into those to see if it was the same unit through the years and change it to the 1775 name of the unit, which has its own category.
