Title: Revolutionary War Bounty Land Grants Awarded by State Governments

Author: Lloyd Dewitt Bockstruck

If you have a relative that served in the Revolutionary War and may have received a bounty land grant, you need to check this book! This book gives the veteran’s name, rank, how much land they received, and if the veteran was deceased it lists the widow and/or heirs. What also makes this book such a great find is that it provides the bounty policies for each state including how much land each rank was entitled to. On a side note, we also have the companion book that is for the grants awarded to the French and Indian wars pre-revolution.
