Biog./Hist. Note     During its session begun in May 1780 the General Assembly passed an act authorizing the governor to impress supplies needed by the American army. The governor appointed commissioners of the provision law in each locality to carry out the terms of the act. The commissioner, when he impressed property, gave the owner a certificate describing what was taken. Between 1781 and 1783 county courts held special sessions at which certificates were presented and

authenticated, and booklets listing authenticated certificates were compiled and sent to Richmond for settlement. Two commissioners appointed to settle the claims recorded those for which they authorized payment, and warrants were issued by the auditor of public accounts.

Biog./Hist. Note     During its session begun in May 1780 the General Assembly passed an act authorizing the governor to impress supplies needed by the American army. The governor appointed commissioners of the provision law in each locality to carry out the terms of the act. The commissioner, when he impressed property, gave the owner a certificate describing what was taken. Between 1781 and 1783 county courts held special sessions at which certificates were presented and

authenticated, and booklets listing authenticated certificates were compiled and sent to Richmond for settlement. Two commissioners appointed to settle the claims recorded those for which they authorized payment, and warrants were issued by the auditor of public accounts.

The project did not begin, however, until Congress’ passage of an act in 1903 providing for the assembling of muster rolls for all the Confederate states and Virginia’s subsequent creation of the Office of the Secretary of Virginia Military Records in 1904. The work of the Secretary of

Virginia Military Records of assembling muster rolls and other documents related to Virginians in the Civil War was continued by the Department of Confederate Military Records which was formed by an act of the General Assemply on March 12, 1912. Major Robert W. Hunter served as Secretary of Virginia Military Records from 1904 until 1910. Hunter was replaced by Colonel Joseph V. Bidgood who served as Secretary of Virginia Military Records and later Secretary of the

Department of Confederate Military Records. In 1918, the General Assembly passed an act abolishing the Department of Confederate Military Records and transferred the department’s records to the Library of Virginia.

Biog./Hist. Note     The act of the General Assembly passed on June 22, 1779, which established the Virginia Land Office, also provided for the rewarding of lands promised as bounty for specified Revolutionary War military service. In order to qualify for bounty land, a soldier had to serve at least three (3) years continuously in the State or Continental line. Militia service did not count. Servicemen submitted various documents such as affidavits of commanding officers and fellow

soldiers and discharge papers in order to substantiate their service record. When the claim was proved, the Governor’s Office issued a certificate to the register of the Land Office authorizing him to issue a warrant. Claims of applicants were rejected if they failed to prove sufficient military service. Many claimants did have significant military service but not enough to qualify for bounty land or, in some cases, additional land.

Related Work         The papers accumulated as proof of service are now part of the records of the Executive Dept. Office of the Governor (RG#3) and are called “Bounty Warrants” if approved and “Rejected Claims” if disapproved. These records are housed in the Archives at the Library of Virginia.

Note     The act of the General Assembly passed on June 22, 1779, which established the Virginia Land Office, also provided for the rewarding of lands promised as bounty for specified Revolutionary War military service. The purpose of the bounty land system was to encourage longer military service. In order to qualify for bounty land, a soldier had to serve at least three (3) years continuously in the State or Continental line. Militia service did not count. Servicemen

submitted various documents such as affidavits of commanding officers and fellow soldiers and discharge papers in order to substantiate their service record. When the claim was proved, the Governor’s Office issued a certificate to the register of the Land Office authorizing him to issue a warrant. The first warrant was issued in 1782 and the last in 1876 as heirs of warrantees continued to seek lands for additional service. Land awarded as bounty was in the

present-day states of Ohio and Kentucky.

Related Work         The papers accumulated as proof of service are now part of the records of the Executive Dept. Office of the Governor (RG#3) and are called ‘Bounty Warrants’ if approved and ‘Rejected Claims’ if disapproved. These records are housed in the Archives at the Library of Virginia.

Biog./Hist. Note     On March 13, 1884, the General Assembly passed an act directing the adjutant general to compile a roster of all those who served from Virginia in the Confederate armed forces. The project did not begin, however, until Congress’ passage of an act in 1903 providing for the assembling of muster rolls for all the Confederate states and Virginia’s subsequent creation of the Office of the Secretary of Virginia Military Records in 1904. The work of the Secretary of

Virginia Military Records of assembling muster rolls and other documents related to Virginians in the Civil War was continued by the Department of Confederate Military Records which was formed by an act of the General Assemply on March 12, 1912. Major Robert W. Hunter served as Secretary of Virginia Military Records from 1904 until 1910. Hunter was replaced by Colonel Joseph V. Bidgood who served as Secretary of Virginia Military Records and later Secretary of the

Department of Confederate Military Records. In 1918, the General Assembly passed an act abolishing the Department of Confederate Military Records and transferred the department’s records to the Library of Virginia.

Note                 The Confederate Rosters are now part of the Virginia Dept. of Military Affairs record group (RG# 46) housed in the Archives at the Library of Virginia.
