This massive undertaking not only reproduces the service record of the nearly two thousand Confederate soldiers from Rockingham County who served in all the theaters of combat, but it also gives extremely valuable information regarding the soldier's family. whenever possible, the author has searched out birth and death dates, as well as places when known; the wife's name and her vital statistics; parents' names; children, and their spouses, and a wealth of other miscellaneous information. Several appendices contain the soldiers' names with their unit designations for quick reference; and an extensive bibliography. Persons with relations in Rockingham will find this a treasure trove of information. This is the third volume in the Valley of Virginia Confederate Series by this author; see also Shenandoah and Page Counties.
