I am working on finding out information about where one of my ancestors would have been during his tour of duty. I know one of his commanding officers was Colonel Champion Travis of the Virginia State Regiment. I was wondering if the Virginia State Regiment formed in 1775 later became known as the 1st Virginia State Regiment because it was the first unit of militia for the state and also where all that regiment would have been between 1775 and 1783. I heard they were at Valley Forge. I know they were mostly for state defense but I wanted to know what other battles they may have been in.
