Roster of Revolutionary Soldiers in Georgia
Mrs. Howard H. McCall
Mrs. McCall's roster of Georgia soldiers in the Revolution was compiled over many years. The work as a whole is cumulative, with only slight, albeit significant, differences in the kinds of information which may be found in one volume versus another. This volume (Volume III) is the longest of the work and contains records of officers and soldiers. The majority of the entries are for Georgia officers and soldiers, although some material relates to other states. Clearfield Company also publishes Volumes I and II of this monumental work. Volume I ocontains the records of hundreds of Revolutionary War soldiers and officers of Georgia, with genealogies of their families, and lists of soldiers buried in Georgia whose graves have been located. The arrangement of Volume II is similar; however, it contains records of officers and soldiers not only from Georgia but also from other states, many of whose descendants later came to Georgia because of liberal land grants. This is an extremely rich work, covering several thousand Revolutionary soldiers and referring to as many as 20,000 persons overall, each of whom is easily found in the name index at the back of each volume.
