Examine Military Records to Learn More About the Ancestors

musterrollsIf you are expecting to find famous people in your lineage, think again. Those accounts belong to the history books. The really great stories of history have gone untold. They are found by individual researchers who examine every piece of evidence and assemble interesting accounts. Military records are a good source, because one can trace the tracks of their own ancestors by examining muster rolls, pensions and battles of the officers under whom they served. For example, to learn about the participation of the ancestor, and his battles by researching the commanders and their battles. If one follows General Richard Lee during the revolutionary war, for example, they learn that near the end, this General was send to the Carolinas to prevent Lord Cornwallis from getting his troops to North Carolina. Georgia and South Carolina Militia companies which had been taunting the British to keep them from seizing charleston, came out of the woods and joined him. Thereafter, some important battles ensured, including the Battle of King's Mountain, which was tantamount to defeating Lord Cornwallis at Yorktown. Attention should be given to skirmishes and guerrilla tactics used to push back the British. As the genealogist learns the finite details of battle, he understands the motives of his ancestors and appreciates their sacrifice. Georgia Pioneers has the Georgia Civil War Pensions
