Biographical or historical data
The 1st Virginia State Regiment was one of three regiments created by the General Assembly in December 1776. These units were separate from the Continental Line and were intended for local defense within the state. After the defeat at the battle of Germantown, however, the 1st & 2nd Virginia State Regiments were sent to serve in the Continental Line in Muhlenburg's brigade until late 1779. In February 1782, the unit merged with Dabney's Legion.
