Format: Paperback
One of the rewards given out to the American citizen soldiers who fought in the War of Independence against the British forces was the allotment of 'bounty land' in appreciation and recognition of their services to the newly emerging country. Not only did these land grants come from the federal government, they were also provided by nine of the state governments as well. These land bounty states included Connecticut, Georgia, Maryland, Massachusetts, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, and Virginia awarding land grants in their western areas which also served the additional purpose of helping to populate and settle the wilderness. These individual states did not centralize their records. "Revolutionary War Bounty Land Grants" represents years of dedicated effort by Lloyd deWitt Bockstruck in gathering, compiling and organizing the state bounty land records, creating a master index for them, and making truly accessible more than 35,000 names (counting duplicates) in an alphabetical format. Enhanced with the addition of a separate index to heirs, representatives and other assignees, "Revolutionary War Bounty Land Grants" is a seminal and very highly recommended work of original historical research and a welcome addition to personal and academic American History reference collections. Additionally, "Revolutionary War Bounty Land Grants" will also prove to be a unique informational resource for genealogists as well.
