3. Virginia's Colonial Soldiers
Author: by Lloyd D. Bockstruck
Published at: Genealogical Publishing Company, Inc. (January 1, 1998)
American military history began with the establishment of the Virginia colonial militia in the seventeenth century. Although ill-trained, it was the colony’s only defense against Indian attacks and invasion by hostile powers. The records left are fragmentary and scattered, and it has always been hard to locate them and make them accessible.
With the publication of this work that problem is now behind us. From research based on county court minutes and orders, bounty land applications and warrants, records of courts martial, county militia rosters, Hening’s Statutes at Large, the Draper manuscripts, and manuscripts in the Public Record Office in London, we now have an authoritative register of Virginia’s colonial soldiers.
And it is not merely a dry catalogue of names and dates, for included are the military’s “size” rolls which routinely give the soldier’s place of birth, age, residence, occupation, and physical description. And sometimes this was made even more informative when the enlisting officer recorded his impressions of the soldier!

Author: by Antonia Felix

Author: by Peter N. Stearns
Published at: NYU Press; 2nd edition (April 15, 2008)
A textbook of primary sources of key events in history that have altered the pastWhile world history materials date back to prehistoric times, the field itself is relatively young. Indeed, when the first edition of Peter Stearns’s best-selling World History in Documents was published in 1998, world history was poised for explosive growth, with the College Board approving the AP world history curriculum in 2000, and the exam shortly thereafter.
At the university level, survey world history courses are increasingly required for history majors, and graduate programs in world history are multiplying in the U.S.And overseas. World events have changed as rapidly as the field of world history itself, making the long-awaited second edition of World History in Documents especially timely.
In addition to including a new preface, focusing on current trends in the field, Stearns has updated forty percent of the textbook, paying particular attention to global processes throughout history. The book also covers key events that have altered world history since the publication of the first edition, including terrorism, global consumerism, and environmental issues.
