Military Bounty Land

Military Bounty Land 1776 - 1855 by Christine Rose is a detailed account if military bounty land records.  Federal bounty land was offered as an inducement to enlist or remain in the military.  During the Revolutionary War, some states also offered bounty land; these are also covered.  This guidebook explains what records are available, how to locate them, and includes an appendix of the important laws which generated the awards.  Among the finding aids are books, internet resources, and where to obtain copies of the original material.

I'm sorry this one did not get out to you last month - I must have hit the wrong button!  Susan
