Amelia County, Virginia

From Diary of the American Revolution, Vol I. Compiled by Frank Moore and published in 1859.

We hear that the young ladies of Amelia county, in Virginia, considering the situation of their country in particular, and that of the United States in general, have entered into a resolution not to permit the addresses of any person, be his circumstances or situation in life what they will, unless he has served in the American armies long enough to prove by his valor that he is deserving of their love.1
