Wednesday, June 30, 2004 - Revolutionary War Sources: "Revolutionary War Sources Kip Sperry"

The American Revolution, a major military conflict between the Thirteen Colonies and Great Britain, began in 1775 and ended with the Treaty of Paris in 1783. As a result of the Revolutionary War, also known as the American War of Independence, many historical and genealogically-related records were created. This column overviews some of the major records.
One of the most valuable collection of records for this conflict is the Revolutionary War Pension and Bounty-Land-Warrant Application Files which consists of some eighty thousand military application files. Service is based on participation of American military, naval, and marine officers and enlisted men in the Revolutionary War. Bounty land warrants were granted by the federal government to veterans who served in the Revolutionary War, or were granted to their heirs. The collection has been microfilmed by the National Archives (microfilm M804, 2,670 rolls) and is available at the Family History Library in Salt Lake City and the Harold B. Lee Library, Brigham Young University, Provo, Utah. Records are arranged alphabetically by surname. See the Family History Library Catalog (FHLC) for microfilm numbers. Other records for the Revolutionary War are housed at the NARA.
