Muster Rolls of the Virginia Volunteers 1917-1920

The Virginia Volunteers for the period 1917-1920 were the state’s solution to being left without a National Guard during World War I. These men voluntarily joined the Virginia Volunteers organization for service within the state at the call of the governor. When World War I was over, and the National Guard resumed its pre-war position as Virginia’s militia, the Virginia Volunteers were disbanded.
