THE IlfVALlD REGIMEN'

regiments, that in case, they have any sergeants, corporiup,
drummers, or private men. deemed incapable of doing fl^

duty such men be examined by the director of the Eosprtai
or some other physician or surgeon, and if judged fit for gar-
rison duty, that they be not discharged but transferred to tbe
invalid corps, and sent to Philadelphia as soon as possible.-
Men having only one leg or one arm each, if otherwise capable
of doing garrison duty to be deemed proper recruits for this
corps. •

"3. That the following advertisement be published in the
several newspapers as soon as possible, viz:

War Office, June, 1777.

Congress being desirous to make provision for such men as
suffer in the military service of the United States, have di-
rected a regiment of invalids to be immediately raised for the
reception of such as have already been, or may in future, be
rendered by wounds or disorders incapable of doing field
duty, but are yet fit for garrison service. Notice is hereby
given, that all persons in Philadelphia or within 20 miles
round, who are under Continental half-pay, on account of in-
capacities contracted in the service, must, within fifteen days,
repair to Philadelphia, and shew themselves to Col. Nicola,
in Front street, four doors below the Coffee house, that if
judged capable of duty they may be put on full pay. All other
persons who have served in the armies of the United States,
within the above description, though not on half-pay, may
present themselves, and, if judged capable, they will be im-
mediately received. All such as are above 20 miles from Phil-
adelphia, must apply to the nearest Continental general, field
officer, physician or surgeon, who are desired to forward such
as they judge fit for the corps of invalids. Officers, who, from
wounds or disorders contracted in the service, are rendered
unfit for field duty, must signify their pretensions with cer-
tificates from Continental physicians or surgeons, to the Board
of War. As this corps is intended not only as a provision for
disabled officers and soldiers, but as a school for propagating
military knowledge and discipline, no officers need apply but
such as produce ample certificates of their having served with
reputation, and having supported good characters both as citi-
zens and soldiers. Officers and soldiers who have engaged
during the war will be preferred."

The customary process of transferring invalid officers to this
regiment was upon the order of Gen. Washington or of the



CONTINENTAL UNB.

BoOfa of War; there were no promotions of officers so trans-
fenred.

The regiment was directed to be disbanded in April,1783, but
It will be seen by reference to the roll herewith presented,
that many of the men were not discharged until the close of the
year, while most of the officers were paid up to December,
1784.
