Biographical or historical data
The 2nd Virginia Regiment was created by the Third Virginia Convention on 17 July 1775 under Col. William Woodford. The regiment entered Continental service on 13 February 1776. Alexander Spotswood replaced Woodford as colonel on 21 February 1777. As a result of its loss of strength, the 2nd Virginia Regiment consolidated with the 6th Virginia Regiment at White Plains, NY, on 14 September 1778. In addition, the regiment was temporarily consolidated with the 3rd & 4th Virginia regiments in 1779. The regiment disbanded on 15 November 1783.
