Many of the records refer to MA01, "Massachusetts Soldiers and Sailors in the
War of the Revolution."  While the inclusion of the militia regiments was
straightforward, there were 15 continental line regiments at the battles whose
records do not specifically list Saratoga battles information.  However, the
national archives confirm that the persons included were there during the
battle dates.  Also, some participants are listed as being in a Colonel's,
Lieut. Colonel's or Major's company.  These types of companies did not exist
until after the battles, but the additional information in each record usually
indicates who the Captain was in 1777.
