Orderly Book of the Three Battalions of Loyalists Commanded by Brigadier-General Oliver De Lancey, 1776-1778 is a military diary outlining the activities of three battalions of Loyalists that were raised for the defense of Long Island. All three battalions fell under the command of General Oliver De Lancey. The orderly book includes much detail, and names many specific individuals.

A list of 1500 New York Loyalists who resided in the city of New York during the American Revolution is included as an appendix. Loyalists were those who remained loyal to their King during the rebel uprising that later became the American Revolution or the American War of Independence. The list is organized alphabetically, making it quick and easy to identify specific individuals. The list was compiled from contemporary manuscripts and newspapers covering the period 1776-1784 and alphabetically arranged for easy reference.

A comprehensive index to the remainder of the orderly book is included.

The DeLancey's Brigade was a British provincial military unit of three battalions that was raised for service during the American Revolutionary War. This unit was raised for the defence of Long Island in September 1776. The first two battalions were sent to Halifax and then to Savannah in October, 1778. They were sent to Charleston in December, 1779, fighting at Battle of Eutaw Springs and other battles in the Carolinas. These battalions returned to New York in February, 1782. The third battalion remained in New York. The entire unit was disbanded in New Brunswick in 1783.
