Virginia Cavalcade, a handsomely illustrated magazine of Virginia history
and culture, was published quarterly (January, April, July, and October) by
the Library of Virginia from 1951 to 2002. Each issue contained 48 pages of
engaging, authoritative articles, and illustrations in color and black-and-white,

in volumes 1-51 of the Virginia Cavalcade. Use in conjunction with
the online subscription index, America: History and Life.
How To Use
Volume numbers are followed by the quarterly number, in parentheses, followed
by pages. Beginning with Volume 24, pages were numbered consecutively throughout
each volume, so quarterly numbers have been omitted.
Here are examples:
16(2):13-34 indicates Volume 16, Autumn number,
and page numbers.
27:154-157 indicates Volume and page numbers.
The following symbols have been used:
(M) for map within the pages given.
(D) copy of document within pages given.
* artistic production or photograph of person,
place, or thing within pages given.
Almost all articles have illustrations of some type, but not all the illustrations
Volume 18 includes a Number 5, which should be Volume 19, No. 1. This index
includes material for that number under 18(5) and there is no reference to 19(1).
(In the Colonial Williamsburg Library that issue may be found in both Vol. 18
and Vol. 19.)
Items about Virginia government appear under two headings: "Virginia, Colony,"
and Virginia, Commonwealth."
Information about entries indicated with ========== may be found in the card
