Subject: What was Charles Stedman's role in the British Army?
One of the first detailed British histories of the American war is
"The History of the Origin, Progress, and Termination of the American
War (Dublin, 1794).
Stedman was in the British Army; does anyone know specifically what his
role was? He does
not appear to have been a regimental officer.
(And, if anyone can provide me with a photocopy of his book, I'd be very
22d Regt. F.
He was Lord Cornwallis's commissary general, acc. to this passage at
" In 1794, Charles Stedman, Cornwallis' comissary general, published his account of the "American War." In it he provides what is perhaps the best description of Bryan's "refugees" as they entered Camden."
