With over 360,000 bounty-land applications, this index covers the years of service spanning the War of 1812, the Indian Wars, and the Mexican War. Soldiers, or their heirs, were allowed to submit an application with affidavits, commissions, discharges, or written declarations as proof of service between 1790 and 1855.
The index typically includes information about the soldier's rank, military unit, year of service, state, warrant number and whether or not the application was approved.
This index is only complete into the "L" names as indexing is ongoing currently.
