There are more than 800 organizations represented in this edition of People of the Founding Era, ranging from arts and science organizations such as the Library Company of Philadelphia to military units such as the First Rhode Island Regiment [depicted in the focused browsing]. Users can search by specific organization or by type. Many of these organizations continued well beyond the Founding Era but the focus here remains the time period 1713-1815.
