This is one of the most comprehensive and authoritative published records of Georgia Revolutionary War soldiers. This book is a MUST for those researchers doing work in Georgia during the Revolutionary time period. It should be a companion volume to: A Researcher’s Library of Georgia History, Genealogy, and Records, Vol. 1, and Georgia Citizen and Soldiers. Even though Georgia did not furnish a large body of troops to the Revolutionary struggle, it did acquire a vast number of veterans filing for bounty land grants from other states. The reason for this is that it was the youngest of the English colonies with vast amounts of land but a scant population, located on the remote southern frontier. These bounty grants were issued after the war as payment for service rendered and to promote settlement in this the youngest of the colonies.
