The Committee on Safety for these two eastern Virginia counties during this crucial time period mark a time when the militia units were very important in the colonies. A militia unit was composed of local men between the ages of 16 - 50 who formed the defense of the area as volunteers. At this time, there was very little of a standing army and so the volunteer soldier protected the frontier. This volume details the militia at this time in these two counties.
