Note: The soldiers' payroll accounts are itemized income and expenses sheets covering July 1757-April 1758. In today's terms, a suitable comparison would be your monthly pay stub. Due to the volume of payroll accounts made available [about 90 total] this will be a reoccurring topic of discussion over the next few years.
