The Soldiery of West Virginia
The Soldiery of West Virginia. Virgil A. Lewis. (1911). This is the most comprehensive compilation of West Virginia soldiers in the Revolution and other wars, containing rosters and, in many cases, service records of thousands of soldiers, with narratives on the various wars.
The rosters and rolls, here collected for the first time, are drawn from both published and unpublished sources, the original records being in many cases in the Department of Archives and History of the State of West Virginia. "The reader is struck by the extent of the troop rosters, especially in regard to detail. All manner of tidbits of information went into the routine rosters of participants, replete with rank and survival data."--West Virginia History.Genealogical.com publishes genealogy books and CDs.
