The Library of Virginia is the most important repository of military records of Virginians who served in various ways from Virginia’s founding to the end of World War II. Library staff members Tom Crew (senior reference archivist) and Ginny Dunn (archives and library reference services manager) present records unique to the Library, as well as records available on microfilm and in digital format from institutions such as the National Archives, including printed resources. Service in the Revolutionary War, the Civil War, and World Wars I and II will be highlighted, along with militia service through the centuries, as well as lesser-known conflicts such as the War of 1812 and the French and Indian War. Enjoy an optional free tour of the special exhibition Forgotten Soldiers: African American Soldiers in the American Revolution. For more information, contact email@example.com or 804.692.3001.
