        Text: THEPENNSYLVANIA MAGAZINEorHISTORY AND BIOGRAPHY.Vol. XXXVIII. 1914. No. 2.ORGANIZATION OF THE PROVISIONAL ARMY OF THE UNITED STATES IN THE ANTICIPATED WAR WITH FRANCE, 1798-1800.By Dr. Carlos E. Godfr ey.While the United States did not actually declare war against France, Congress substantially did so by their act of May 28,1798, in authorizing the President to use the naval forces at his command t o prevent depredations upon American commerce by the armed vessels of the French Republic; and also in their declaration of the 7th of the following July, that the treaties existing between the two co untries were no longer obligatory on the United States.Congress by their act of May 28, 1798, as well as the one superseding it on the second of the ensuing March, vested discretionary power in the Ex ecutive to increase the strength of the regular army and in accepting the service of volunteers, in the event of a declaration of war or a threatened invasion of the country by a foreign power.Aside f rom these precautionary measures the PresiVol. XXXVIII.—9 129dent of the United States was authorized and directed on July 16,1798, to increase the regular military establishment with twelve regimen ts of infantry and six troops of light dragoons, "to be enlisted for and during the continuance of the existing differences between the United States and the French Republic, unless sooner discharged. " This increase was known as the Provisional Army. The act not only denned the composition and grades of rank of the organizations, but directed the six troops of dragoons, together with the two troop s then in service, to be formed into a regiment, and it also provided for the appointment of certain grades of general officers. This act was amended on the 3d of the following March, which increase d the enlisted strength of an infantry or cavalry regiment from 700 to 1000 men; required the regimental staff, excepting the surgeon and mates, to be commissioned in the line; and the grade of lieute nant, ensign or cornet, were designated first and second lieutenants, respectively. The amendment further provided that a cavalry regiment should consist of five squadrons of two troops each; that a n infantry regiment should be composed of two battalions of five companies each; that two regiments should constitute a brigade, and two brigades a division; together with other minor details immateri al to our subject.On July 19,1798, all the general officers were commissioned; "Washington accepting the office of lieutenantgeneral; Alexander Hamilton becoming inspector-general; William North, adju tant-general; and James Craik, physician-general. The twelve infantry regiments were designated numerically, by order, the 5th to the 16th regiments, respectively. These regiments together with the ca valry were officered on January 8, 1799, excepting the 13th infantry, which was accomplished February 13, and the 5th and 6th infantry on the twenty-fourth of the following April.In recruiting the Pro visional Army it was designed that it should be raised in the following manner: Cavalry Regiment—two troops in Virginia, and one troop each in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Maryland and South Carolina ; 5th Infantry—six companies in South Carolina, and two each in Georgia and Kentucky; 6th Infantry—nine companies in North Carolina, and one in Tennessee; 7th Infantry—ten companies in Virginia ; 8th Infantry—ten companies in Virginia; 9th Infantryten companies in Maryland; 10th Infantry—ten companies in Pennsylvania; 11th Infantry—six companies in New Jersey, three in Pennsylvania, an d one in Delaware; 12th Infantry—ten companies in New York; 13th Infantry—ten companies in Connecticut; 14th Infantry —ten companies in Massachusetts; 15th Infantry—six companies in Maine, an d four in Massachusetts; and the 16th Infantry—four companies in New Hampshire, and three each in Vermont and Rhode Island. The maximum enlistment of these organizations amounted to 12,928 men, incl uding the non-commissioned staff and musicians.The large mass of unpublished manuscripts belonging to the Hamilton and Washington collections in the Congressional Library contains every species of off icial correspondence and returns, showing that the Provisional Army was more than a paper organization as generally believed. They also contain numerous lists of Revolutionary officers and others seek ing commissions in the new army, showing their individual residence, prior military service, recommendations, and other detailed minutia of personal interest.Carefully prepared plans of every regiment al recruiting circle are found in the Hamilton papers, showing the location of the regimental rendezvous and the several sub-districts where officers were recruiting. The consolidated returns show tha t many of the regiments began recruiting in May, and others as late as August, 1799. The latest one noticed for November 4, 1799, shows the following result: 5th Infantry—no returns; 6th Infantry— 134 men; 7th Infantry—258; 8th Infantry-^24; 9th Infantry—314; 10th Infantry—448; 11th Infantry-458; 12th Infantry—287; 13th Infantry —371; 14th Infantry—327; 15th Infantry—145; and th e 16th Infantry—233; or an aggregate enlisted strength of 3399 men. By the act approved February 20, 1800, future enlistments were suspended until the further order of Congress, unless war should br eak out between France and the United States.In November, 1799, the several regiments were assembled at various military posts in the United States acquired by the government for that purpose. The sta ff to the brigade and division commanders appear to have been appointed at intervals in the spring of 1800, but no evidence is found that their nominations were either transmitted to or confirmed by t he senate. On June 15, 1800, the Provisional Army was disbanded pursuant to an act of Congress approved the fourteenth of the previous month, whereby all officers and enlisted men were honorably disch arged with three months extra pay.The convention of peace, commerce and navigation was concluded by the plenipotentiaries of the governments of the United States and France Septembr 30,1800, and the r atification exchanged at Paris on the 31st of July, 1801. It was approved by the United States Senate December 19, 1801, and promulgated by a proclamation of the President of the United States the fol lowing day.ROSTER OF OFFICERS.Compiled from the Hamilton and Washington papers in the Congressional Library, and from the records of the War Department.* Served in the Revolution.t Served in the Penns ylvania Insurrection.t Served in the War of 1812-15.JOHN DE BARTH WALBACH*, Lieutenant, 8th January (accepted 16th January), 1799; born, Germany; residence, Lancaster, Penna.; 1st Lieutenant, 3d March , 1799; honorably discharged 15th June, 1800; died 10th June, 1857.
