Biographical or historical data
The state government faced serious problems mobilizing for war after Virginia seceded from the Union on 17 April 1861. The secession convention passed an ordinance on 27 April creating a board of commissioners to audit and settle all accounts for expenses incurred in defense of the state. The ordinance was repealed on 30 April when a new ordinance of a more comprehensive nature was passed. The board continued in operation until the end of the war.
