Amherst County Virginia in the Revolution

Formed from Albemarle in 1761, Amherst County, much larger than it is today, rested on the eastern slope of the Blue Ridge, and included what we now call Nelson County. This book is the result of many hours spent in a congested courthouse gathering together information from various sources. Some of the documents originally thought missing, she found. One such discovery was "The Lost Order Book" for the years 1773-1782, an interesting document containing records of the court, records that provide us with insights into daily life and the legal system in place at that time. This work contains information on the Committee of Safety, and Minute Men, the First Rifle Company, Revolutionary Officers of the Amherst County Militia, Captain Azariah Martin's Company of Militia, Captain William Tucker's Company of Militia, Regiment of Guards, Clothing and Beef for the 16th Division, Disbursement to the Wives, Widows and Orphans of Revolutionary Soldiers, Letter of Colonel William Fontaine Describing Surrender of Cornwallis, Letter of Colonel Hugh Rose to Governor Harrison, Claims for Property Impressed or Taken for Public Service, Applications for Pensions, Soldiers of the French and Indian War, and the Officers of Amherst Militia Before the Revolution. The Appendix contains the Will of Sarah Henry, mother of Patrick Henry. An assortment of illustrations and the original full-name index further complement this work.
