United States Military lands, are twenty ranges of townships, of five miles square each, beside the fractional part of the 21st range, extending 100 miles from the Scioto River eastward, and to an average breadth of 40 miles from the Indian boundary north to the Refugee tract and Congress lands south.
These lands compose parts of Chillicothe, and of Zanesville districts. This tract of country was originally surveyed by order of the general government, and appropriated to the payment of revolutionary officers and soldiers; from which circumstance, is derived the appellation military. It is probably as valuable a portion of the state as can anywhere be found, of similar extent. The western parts are very level, and in some places rather wet, so that the roads are very bad, until improved by considerable labor. The eastern parts, however, are hilly and broken; but still contains considerable bodies of fertile land. The Muskingum and Scioto rivers, together with several of their branches, water this tract of country.
