In June 1783, most of the Massachusetts Line was furloughed . Washington released the men who had enlisted for the duration of the war, and kept those who had enlisted for a period of three years or less and still had time remaining on their enlistments. These men, from the 1st through 8th Massachusetts Regiments, were assigned to the four newly formed Massachusetts units remaining in service, designated the 1st through 4th Massachusetts Regiments.
