Biographical or historical data
The inhabitants of Virginia's western frontier in what is now southwest Virginia and West Virginia were subjected to Indian raids from 1790 through 1794. An act passed by the General Assembly during its October 1792 session authorized the governor to direct temporary defensive operations to protect the frontier. The governor corresponded with the president of the United States on the subject and the War Department reimbursed the state for expenses incurred in its defense.
