  • "Major-General Edward Braddock's 2 orderly books, containing orders issued by Braddock in Virginia and Fort Cumberland (Md.) to the commanding officers of his troops between Feb. 26 and June 17, 1755, at the outset of the French and Indian War. The early orders by Braddock, general and commander-in-chief of the English forces in North America, were issued from Williamsburg, and concern logistical, administrative, and disciplinary matters of the army. Subsequent orders organize troop movements from Alexandria to Winchester (Va.), to Frederick (Md.), and to Rock Creek. An order of May 10, 1755 notes that "Mr. Washington is appointed Aid de Camp to His Excellency General Braddock," and court-martials, and sentences handed down for theft, desertion, alcohol consumption, gaming, and other infractions are also recorded. Other orders regulate supplies and provisions, and the presence of women among the troops."
