Described
Biographical or historical data
The Virginia Forces were state troops organized shortly after the outbreak of hostilities in April 1861. On June 8, they were formally transferred to the Confederate government in accordance with the agreement of April 24. Since the Virginia Forces remained an administrative unit throughout most of 1861, some records are dated as late as November. Most of them are from the period of state control.
