Description: 2670 microfilm reels ; 35 mm.
Contents: "Each file that is a single 10"x14" summary or cross-reference card and all envelope files in the series of Revolutionary War Pension and Bounty-Land-Warrant Application Files have been reproduced in this microfilm publication. The files, with the exception of "Former Widow" cross-reference cards, are arranged in alphabetical order by the surname of the veteran. When two or more veterans have the same surname and given name, the further arrangement of the files based on their service is generally alphabetical by the name of the State or organization for which a veteran served, or by the word "Continental," "Navy," or some other service designation placed in the heading of some files above or before the name of a State. "Former Widow" cross-reference cards are arranged by the surname that the former widow acquired upon remarriage." --
Introd. "Within files, the records are unarranged. However, in each envelope file containing more than 10 pages of records, the more significant genealogical documents were filmed first, preceded by a target headed 'SELECTED RECORDS.' The documents may include pension applications, jackets showing the act under which pension payments were made, bounty-land-warrant applications, jackets showing the warrant numbers of warrants granted, property schedules, family-record pages from family Bibles or other books, copies of marriage records, and final payment vouchers. All remaining documents in that file were filmed after a target headed 'NONSELECTED RECORDS.' No distinction was made between selected and non selected records in filming the envelope files that contained 10 or fewer pages of records; these files can be recognized by a star next to the veteran's surname in the heading." --

Abstract:

"On the rolls of this microfilm publication are reproduced an estimated 80,000 pension and bounty-land-warrant application files based on the participation of American military, naval, and marine officers and enlisted men in the Revolutionary War. Most of the records in the files are dated between 1800 and 1900"--Introduction.

"Bounty-land warrants--rights to free land in the public domain--were granted under acts of the Continental Congress and of the Federal Government to veterans and to heirs of veterans for Revolutionary War service of specified periods of time. The promise of bounty-land during the Revolutiuonary War was another inducement to enter and remain in service; after the war, bounty-land grants became a form of reward. Most warrants were issued to servicemen or their heirs who met common eligibility standards established by public acts passed by Congress. The records reproduced in this microfilm publication pertain only to bounty-land warrants made available under acts of the U.S. Government."--Introduction.
