Bounty land was awarded to those who served in the wars from 1776, with the last act granting this reward passed in 1855. During this period millions of acres were awarded by the government. A multitude of records were generated, many of them providing important family information which family historians will be eager to locate. This guidebook explains what records are available, how to locate them, and includes an appendix of the important laws which generated the awards.
