Facsimile reprint of the original 1913 book. 337 pages. This book is near fine, other than small note on title page that reads "set up." "Although most able- bodied men served in the militia during the Revolutionary war, the militia records were not well kept, and many have been lost, so compilations such as the present work take on special value... Included in this work are a listing of Virginia militia units and the actions in which they were engaged, abstracts of the pension application declarations of several hundred Virginia soldiers who received pensions solely on the basis of their militia service, a listing of militia officers appointed by the various counties in Virginia, and listings of pensioners living in 1835 who served in Viginia militia units during the war. The latter listing includes many Virginians who had migrated elsewhere and, since the listings show their residence as of 1835, can be of great help in tracing families back to their Virginia roots."
