Would you like to assist with this project which is ongoing?

We need transcribers of 18th century letters. The Library of Congress has informed us that not all letters are transcribed yet.  The index on this site indicates which letters have not text transcribed yet. Here is an example of one letter which is not transcribed yet.

Other assistance is needed for research regarding Caleb Brewster, for example, to determine the names of the other people who accompanied him on the spy and attack missions during the Revolutionary War.  Recently published books indicated that we do not know this information, however, local documents and manuscripts, some not published, appear to list the names.
