back Concord Muster Roll next

The New England Historical and Genealogical Register,xix (1865), pp. 44-45.
This is page 44. The list itself appears on page 45.

Note here that only the introductory text, attributed to the contributor, says anything about a “Minute Company.” The language of the transcribed document is appropriate to an ordinary militia muster roll.

We know that Concord (unlike Lexington) did indeed organize a Minute Company, in response to the Provincial Congress’ directive in October, 1774; other documents record payment of the associated bounty to the participants. Somebody probably knows whether these were the Minute Men; I don’t.
