Early History Branch

Research Materials Available

The Early History Branch carries out research, writing, and editing responsibilities on the history of the United States Navy from the American Revolution through the First World War. In connection with two major ongoing documentary publication projects, the Branch has assembled extensive collections of microfilms and photostatic copies of documents on the American Revolution and the War of 1812. The collection is available for research, provided such research does not interfere with the work of the branch, and subject to restrictions placed by the repositories from which the copies have been obtained.

Materials must be used during business hours between 0900 and 1600 (9:00 to 4:00). Materials may not be borrowed or sent out on interlibrary loan. An appointment to use research materials is recommended.
