By searching across all types of material it is possible to pull together a variety of sources related to a single event. Searching for a place name, such as White Plains, will retrieve letters written at White Plains as well as maps of the vicinity. By searching for a particular date, you can retrieve newspapers, broadsides, and manuscripts published or written on that date. By searching on "note" you can retrieve documents where the collection archivist has used your entered search text in their description of the item.
Please note that you cannot search the full text of the materials in this archive. For example, a search for Benedict Arnold will retrieve letters by him but not newspaper articles about him.
