This volume deals in large part with a skirmish with the Indians in Augusta County, Virginia, in December 1742. It also contains considerable material on the sieges of Wheeling, West Virginia, in 1777 and 1782 and the role of the Zane family in the defense of the fort at Wheeling. The papers of William Byrd III (1728-1777), date mainly from the period 1758-1761 and cover the campaign against the Cherokee Indians in 1761.
