Summary

Summary

This book is a transcription of the muster rolls and pay rolls of the state militia troops who were paid to protect the frontier or who fought alongside federal troops in the various frontier campaigns. From the records of the Adjutant General's Office located in the National Archives, Murtie June Clark compiled data from the surviving federal records of the militia organizations of the following states and territories: Georgia, Kentucky, New Jersey, Ohio Territory, Pennsylvania, Southwest Territory (modern Tennessee), and Virginia. Named in these records, with dates of enlistment, rank, and other items of information, are militia troops participating in St. Clair's defeat in the Northwest Territory, Anthony Wayne's expeditions, the Whiskey Rebellion, the Battle of Fallen Timbers, and a host of other campaigns in areas north of the Ohio River, in Tennessee, along the Oconee in Georgia, and elsewhere.
