Amazing Records at NARA

If you'd like to see some truly amazing record images, click here.
These are images of family records found by NARA staff in the case files of Revolutionary and War of 1812 pension and bounty land warrant applications.
It appears to me that "Wikimeda Commons" has provided two images of each record, one at a high resolution and the other at a lower resolution. They are labeled, but I haven't figured out how to get a list of the captions so you can scan the surnames.
If any of these records are for YOUR family, I'd love to hear it!
