Upcoming Live Webinar

“Colonial to Civil War Records in the North Carolina Archives” with Craig R. Scott

Most researchers seem to think that military records are only located in the National Archives. The North Carolina Archives holds a treasure trove of records that cannot be found in Washington, DC. Most of the records are financial in nature. Records exist, to some extent, for the Tuscarora Indian War, the Spanish Alarm and the French and Indian War, and the War of Regulation that predate the American Revolution. Pay vouchers and account books (in four series), a register of the North Carolina Continental Line and Bounty Land warrants, are extant. There are records of Loyalists and Confiscated Lands. In the same time period, there are records of the Cherokee and Chicamauga Expeditions. Conveniently, records are also extant for conflicts that most Americans were involved in, into the 20th-century. A treasure trove.

Craig Roberts Scott, MA, CG, FUGA, is the author of The ‘Lost Pensions’: Settled Accounts of the Act of 6 April 1838 (Revised) and Records of the Accounting Officers of the Department of the Treasury, Inventory 14 (Revised).
