Representation of the Field-Officers of the Pennsylvania Battalions to the Congress

v4:655

REPRESENTATION OF THE FIELD-OFFICERS OF THE PENNSYLVANIA BATTALIONS.

[Read January 11, 1776.]

The Field-Officers of the four Battalions to be raised in Pennsylvania, beg leave to represent to Congress: That considerable inconveniences will arise from the battalions consisting of seven battalion companies, that number not answering for subdivisions, and rendering all the manoeuvres more difficult. They, therefore, request that another company may be added to the battalion; or, if it should be thought that would increase their number too much, that the battalion companies be reduced to sixty-eight men each, in which mode there may be eight companies to a battalion, and a company of light-infantry, without increasing the number of men to be raised by the present establishment of Congress.
