RG 1800.035 ADJUTANT GENERAL FILES (CIVIL WAR)

These records contain a wide variety of individual documents. The records in the boxes labeled “Adjutant General Files, General” are from the Office of the Adjutant General, Delaware, are organized first by year, and then by subject matter therein. Some of the folders contain papers relating to one particular subject, such as the Home Guards, Colored Troops, and sick and wounded soldiers, while others contain executive correspondence, and others still hold copies of General Orders and Special Orders from the War Department in Washington, D. C.
Other boxes contain quartermaster reports, muster-in rolls, muster-out rolls, morning reports, and monthly returns. The rolls are organized by unit, usually at the regimental level.
The records in the oversized box are various documents too large for regular boxes. See the listing for the contents of this box.
