The author examines the formation of the Volga Cossack Host, its ethnic and social structure, its economic set-up and administration, and state service of the Cossacks. Contrary to interpretations entrenched in historiography, Volga Host Cossacks were generally well-off rather than poor. The cause of their resettlement to the Terek River was not their participation in the Pugachev rebellion. Instead, it was the establishment of the Azov-Mozdok fortified line. The Volga Cossack Host and the Khopyor Cossack Regiment were the main sources of manpower for colonization and protection of newly acquired border territory. Land-poor peasants (from monastic or church lands) from central regions were settled on abandoned lands of the Volga Host, and Cossacks who remained on the Volga were transferred to the Astrakhan Cossack Regiment.
