Virginia Soldiers of 1776
This monumental three-volume reference work is based on official government records on file in the Virginia Land Office and on documents in the Archives Department of the Virginia State Library. The records are of several classes–bounty warrants, military certificates, exchange warrants, and land vouchers–and they establish absolute proof of Revolutionary service and of the descent of bounty land. The material in this work is compiled in the form of abstracts and is arranged throughout in a series of articles, some running as many as three or four pages. The several thousand names mentioned in the articles can be readily located in the indexes to the set, which is regarded as a major source for Virginia genealogy.
