The following is from the book Virginians in the Revolution, Chapter X1, End of the War, published 1998. The Virginia treason trial general court established in 1782 at their October session, sentenced five men from Nansemond County to death. Two of those men were Aldridgton and John Holland. The men were allowed to file a petition for pardon. They admitted their guilt but stated their reasons for joining the enemy was because of the “despondency prevailing in Southeast Virginia”. The Virginia assembly pardoned Albridgton Holland in the fall of 1782 on the condition that he serve a year in the Continental Army. In May of 1783, the Legislature pardoned John Holland, “seemingly the last man under sentence of death”
