Frederick County, Virginia Men in Gray.
Thomas M. Spratt. 2008.
The author, who has already produced similar works on Shenandoah, Page, and Rockingham Counties (see the county pages for description), has drawn upon a number of original and printed sources to produce brief biographies of those men who served for the Confederacy and were born in Frederick county or later called Frederick their home. A brief sample excerpt for one of these soldiers, a certain William B. Mason, follows:
