GW Papers IV Dragoon Index

The writings of George Washington

The writings of George Washington from the original manuscript sources at the Electronic Text Center, University of Virginia Library contains all 39 volumes of the printed text. The two electronic index volumes XXXVIII & XXXIX contain the page number reference which we use to cite our findings in the index of names of 4th Dragoon Officers in the GW Papers. The page number links in the table below link to the electronic text image of the document at the University of Virginia. The Date links in the table link to the Varick Transcripts of the documents at the Library of Congress. It was our intent to have the transcript links set in the document where the aide is credited with the transcript. The use of the electronic images precludes that option unless a link could be established from the University of Virginia Library text and the transcript image at The Library of Congress.
