The purpose of this thesis is to trace the establishment and development of the Medical Corps of the Continental Army, through its Directors General, during the Revolutionary War. It will review the administration of each of the four Directors General and will try to indicate the degree of efficiency or incompetence of the administration of each. The main objective of this thesis will be to relate the story of the Medical Corps during the Revolutionary War and determine whether this organization was efficient and gave proper and adequate medical care to the sick and wounded officers and men of the Continental Army and Navy and whether this medical care was efficient and proper as that given to the English and German troops by their own medical systems.
