New River Notes — Complete

January 21, 2014

After about two years of work we have completed a major upgrade to New River Notes. On January 21, 2014 we switched in the last of the updated files and final page revisions.

In January 2013 we introduced the new site layout but because there were many pages left to do there was a big red Under Construction on the front page. A year later we've finished all of the pages that were on the original site. Construction is complete. We have a great looking site full of material to help you in your research and possibly entertain you.

New River Notes

Welcome and we hope you enjoy our new look.

American Legion Posts of Virginia—1924 Index

SPECIAL NOTE: No history appears herein for a number of the Posts. This is due to the failure of the 1924 Commanders and Historians of those particular posts. Urgent and repeated appeals for these histories were made to the Post Commanders by the Department Commander and the Year Book Committee and especial attention was called to this matter at the Danville Convention. It is a source of deep regret that any Post should be unrepresented in these histories, but it appears to have been unavoidable.
