Synopsis: This work is essentially a compilation of articles that deal wholly or in part with muster and pay rolls, court order books, pension records, land claims, depositions, petitions, militia lists, orderly books, and service records. The majority of the articles focus on the records of the colonial and Revolutionary War periods, but there also are some that relate to the War of 1812. In the aggregate these comprise data of almost unequaled variety and magnitude. Produced over the years by an army of specialists, they were spread throughout the three periodicals named in the title. This varied and immense body of data is brought together in a handy and well-indexed volume, which will make its use by the researcher very easy.
As concerns the contents of the volume, the researcher will find colony- or state-wide articles on Virginia military records from the French and Indian War, the Revolution, the War of 1812, and the Civil War. Still other articles concern Virginia Revolutionary Pensioners, the Virginia Society of the Cincinnati, and Virginia Surgeons and Surgeons' Mates Granted Land Before 1836. Of greatest importance, perhaps, is the collection of articles that are each associated with a single Virginia county; namely, Albemarle, Amelia, Amherst, Augusta, Bath, Brunswick, Buckingham, Caroline, Charles City, Charlotte, Dinwiddie, Greenville, Isle of Wight, King George, King William, Middlesex, Montgomery, Nelson, Northampton, Northumberland, Pittsylvania, Powhatan, Prince Edward, Richmond, Surry, and York.
