Based on widely scattered and little known records, Brumbaugh’s massive Virginia compilation is one of the most ambitious collections of Revolutionary War source materials ever published. Described as “a treasure house of information about Virginians in the Revolutionary War,” it contains list after list of soldiers and sailors extracted from bounty land warrants, pension applications, land scrip records, records of the State Line and the Continental Line, militia records, Half Pay applications, and so on–many never before published. To quote the experts: “This is one of those basic volumes which should be in any major genealogical collection.”–The Virginia Genealogist, Vol. 12, No. 2.
“A work of permanent value, indispensable to all those seeking accurate information.”–The Virginia Magazine of History and Biography, Vol. 45, No. 3.
“No historical or genealogical library with interest in Virginiana or the Revolution in general can afford to be without this work . . .”–The Register of the Kentucky Historical Society, Vol. 35, No. 113.
