New Jersey, American Revolution

Units and men provided during the American Revolution.

Units should be placed into either the Line for those supplied to the Continental Army, or the Militia for state/local forces. If the type of service is unknown, add it here until correct service can be determined.

Individual profiles should be place into a unit when known, the Line or Militia if the unit is unknown, or into this category if only the state of service is known.
