Commanding Officers at Newport Barracks


Information on those who served between 1803 and 1839 was gathered from correspondence of the Adjutant General, the Secretary of War and the Quartermaster General found in the National Archives.  Information after 1839 was taken from Post Reports. This list is by no means complete.  The date does not limit the time the officer served at the Barracks-it is the date of the first time the officer's name was noted.
