The transcribers have presented in this volume verbatim transcripts of all surviving New York muster rolls for the Seven Years' War (the last phase of the French and Indian Wars) from 1755 to 1764 (except for the year 1757, for which records are missing), arranging them in convenient tabular form.  

All muster rolls include the date of the roll, the name of the unit, the names of all the men in the unit and (usually) the rank of every member of the unit. Many of the rolls incorporate additional information, much of it of great genealogical value, including age, birthplace, occupation, date of enlistment and rate of pay. A relatively small number of the rolls also give even more personal data, such as height, complexion and hair color.

The volume concludes with an appendix, containing colonial proclamations regarding the raising of soldiers and other stray documents, and, most importantly, with an every-name index.
