"This microfilm publication reproduces the compiled service records of volunteer soldiers in two Mormon organizations that served in the Mexican War. The first of these organizations, the Mormon Battalion, Volunteers, was organized at Council Bluffs, Iowa, on July 16, 1846. The battalion consisted of five companies of Mormon emigrants, then en route to California, who enlisted for 1 year. At the end of this term of enlistment, an attempt was made to reenroll all the members, but only one company was organized at Los Angeles, California on July 20, 1847. This second Mormon organization, was designated as Capt. Davis' Company A, Mormon Volunteers, and served for six months"--Introd.

"The compiled service records of soldiers belonging to the Mormon organizations are arranged by unit and thereunder alphabetically by soldiers' surnames"--Introd.

"The compiled service records consist of a jacket-envelope for each soldier, labeled with his name, his rank, and the unit in which he served. The jacket-envelope typically contains card abstracts of entries relating to the soldier as found in original muster rolls and returns. There are cross-reference jacket-envelopes for soldiers' names that appear in the records under more than one spelling"--Introd.

The library has an alphabetical card index reproduced on microfilm to the compiled service records of volunteer soldiers who served during the Mexican War. Each index card gives the name of a soldier, his rank, and the unit or units in which he served. There are cross-references for names that appear in the records under more than one spelling. See under: United States. Adjutant General's Office. Index to compiled service records of volunteer soldiers who served during the Mexican War. (M616)
