Phases Of The Revolution In Virginia

Virginia Near Saltville

Virginia militia in the Revolutionary War: McAllister's data:

The first phase of the Revolution, as it relates to Virginia, was therefore the contest with Dunmore on the tidal waters. It was fought with militia, who came in part from the counties toward the Blue Ridge.

The second phase consisted of trouble from the Indians on the western frontier.

The final phase of the Revolution in Virginia did not actively begin until the close of 1780, although in 1779, Clinton, the British commander-in-chief, had sent an expedition to ravage the coast.
