SOLDIERY OF WEST VIRGINIA, in the French and Indian War; Lord Dunmore's War; The Revolution; the Later Indian Wars; the Whiskey Insurrection; the Second War with England; the War with Mexico. Virgil A. Lewis, M. A., State Historian and Archivist, West Virginia. Softcover, (1911), repr. 2010, 240 pp.
This book was excerpted from the Third Biennial Report of the Department of Archives and History of the State of West Virginia, published in 1911. The author, Mr. Lewis, was the State Historian and Archivist for the State of West Virginia, and, thus, the individual responsible for the compilation and submission of the aforementioned report. This work provides one of the most comprehensive listings of soldiers in Western Virginia serving in the French and Indian War, Lord Dunmore's War, The Revolution, the Later Indian Wars, the Whiskey Insurrection, the War of 1812, the War with Mexico, and other smaller skirmishes. Though the content of the rosters vary, most contain the soldiers' names, ranks, unit commanders, and periods of service, other rosters may include memoranda, service record data, and some payroll information. Thousands of individuals have been identified from military reports and records, and both published and unpublished sources.
