Microfilm of original records in The National Archives, Washington, D.C.

Includes card abstracts of entries relating to the soldiers as found primarily in original muster rolls and regimental returns, and occasionally in such other records as medical and assignment cards, and originals of any papers relating solely to individual soldiers, such as enlistment, discharge, requests for leaves of absence and furloughs, etc.

"The compiled service records are arranged alphabetically by surname of soldier. Preceding the jacket-envelopes for individual soldiers are envelopes containing record-of-events cards for the field and staff offices and for each company. These cards are abstracts of information found on muster rolls and regimental returns, which indicate the stations, movements, and activities of the regiment from the time of its organization to its disbandment."

"Card abstracts for an individual soldier show his rank; the company in which he served; when, where, and how long he served; and any payment due him, either as salary or compensation. In addition, abstracts of descriptive lists give the soldier's age, physical description, date and place of birth, residence, occupation, marital status, and name of next of kin. Medical card abstracts show any type of illness incurred, length of illness, where the soldier recuperated or was transferred to, and the date of return to active duty"--Introd.

  • The microfilm may be scheduled for future scanning.
