This presentation outlines basic military records held at the National Archives Building in Washington, DC. The records cover the "Old Military" period from the Revolutionary War to 1917 and are characterized by different types of service, including volunteer service (state regiments and militias) as well as the Regular military (Army, Navy, and Marine Corps). Each type of service was documented differently, but there are also basic records common to all types of service.

John P. Deeben is an archivist with the Reference Branch at the National Archives in Washington, DC. John provides reference services for Old Army records from the Revolutionary War to the early 20th century, and frequently lectures and writes about federal records of genealogical interest.
