Abstract: The road history projects undertaken by the Virginia Transportation Research Council establish the feasibility of studies of early road networks and their use in the environmental review process. These projects, by gathering and publishing the early road orders of the vast parent counties, also lay the foundation for additional research by local groups over a broad area of Virginia. This volume marks the twentieth entry in the Historic Roads of Virginia series, first initiated by the Virginia Transportation Research Council (then the Virginia Highway & Transportation Research Council) in 1973. Amelia County Road Orders 1735-1753 expands the coverage of the early Southside Virginia transportation records begun in the previously published Brunswick County Road Orders 1732-1749 and Lunenburg County Road Orders 1746-1764.
