Charles City County (Va.) Bonds
The original bonds were removed from the courthouse during the Civil War and were deposited in historical societies in Massachusetts and Vermont. The first six bonds were given to the State Library by the Massachusetts Historical Society in 1905 under the accession numbers 19926-19931; the rest were bound together with some acts of the General Assembly by the Vermont Historical Society and were returned to Charles City County in 1975. The two lots have been combined in the photostats. The photostat volume came to the Library of Virginia under the accession number 28725
