The Freedman's Bank was founded in March 1865 as an institution where United States Colored Troops and other freedmen could deposit their military bounty, pay, and savings. Both individuals and institutions such as churches, schools, and organizations did so. The bank failed in 1874. due to mismanagement and fraud. More than $57 million had been deposited in the bank. If depositors submitted their claims, they were eventually given their dividends between the bank's collapse and 1883. The last payment occurred in 1918. Out of the 61,144 accounts, 31,000 depositors never requested or received a dividend. In addition to the 26 branches mentioned in M817, there are records for Mobile, Ala.; Columbus, Miss.; and Lynchburg, Va. The registers are arranged alphabetically by state, thereunder by city, thereunder by date, and thereunder by account number. The records of 8 other branches do not survive. The registers themselves were not indexed; it was necessary to use series M817 as a finding aid. The Freedman's Bank Records on CD-ROM is the master index to the entire set, containing approximately 480,000 pedigree linked names of African Americans. In many of the registers the entry has the account number, name of depositor, date of entry, place of birth, place reared, residence, age, complexion, name of employer or occupation, spouse, children, father, mother, brothers, sisters, remarks, and signature. The early books contain the name of the former owner and the name of the plantation. In some cases a copy of the death certificate may also be appended. These data were collected in an effort to establish bank patrons' identities.

This microfiche edition is the most comprehensive collection of American directories published
prior to the Civil War based on the holdings of the American Antiquarian Society. These are a most
valuable reference tool for tracing the commercial and social changes in successive generations in
urban America. Directories are extremely useful in locating individuals untraceable in other sources.
The classified sections and advertisements indicate what oyster parlors, victualling cellars, breath-
taking balloons, and churches might have existed in a town in a given year. Biographical sketches of
prominent citizens of the community are frequently contained in directories.
The directories are arranged in alphabetical order by the name of the locality and thereunder in
chronological order. Because the directories of larger cities may contain smaller towns in an appendix,
it is advisable to examine Dorothy N. Spear, Bibliography of American Directories Through 1860,
R016.973/S741B, for the appropriate cross references.
The collection includes statewide business directories from 1849­1858 and various cities.

This is an incomplete alphabetical card index to the names of passenger lists arriving at Atlantic and Gulf ports between 1820 and 1874. The port of New York is not included. This index also contains entries from selected volumes of an eight volume series of transcripts that include names of passengers arriving at most Atlantic and Gulf coast ports between 1819 and 1832. Some of the entries from these transcripts are for New York. This index supplements, but does not duplicate, the separate indexes to names on passenger lists of vessels arriving at the following ports: Baltimore 1833­1866, Baltimore 1820­1897, Boston 1848­ 1891, New Bedford 1875­1899, New Orleans 1853­1899, and Philadelphia 1800­1906. The cards are arranged alphabetically by the name of the passenger. In addition to the name of the passenger, the index indicates the names of those accompanying the passenger, age, sex, martial status, occupation, nationality, last permanent residence, destination, port of entry, name of vessel, and date of arrival. The quantity of information on each card varies. Unfortunately, the names of those accompanying each passenger were on the reverse of the cards. Because the index contains a separate card for each person, the reverse was not filmed. It should be noted that no one port has complete records for the years encompassed 1820­1874.

While the Cherokee first ceded portions of their lands east of the Mississippi on 8 July 1817 in exchange for lands in the west, the major removal did not occur until after the treaty of 29 December 1835. Known as the Henderson Roll, the census of 1835 is the list of the heads of families before the removal. There is information for each family and their property. The Henderson Roll has columns for Indian heads of families, Indian half-breeds, quadroons and whites, residence [state, county, and water course], males over 18, males under 18, females over 16, females under 16, total Cherokee, male slaves, female salves, whites connected by marriage, farms, acres in cultivation, houses, bushels of wheat raised, bushes of corn raised, other miscellaneous agricultural data, farmers over 18, mechanics over 181, readers in English, readers in Cherokee, mixed Catawbas, mixed Spaniards, mixed Negroes, weavers, spinsters, reservees, descendants of reservees, and the total. The only persons named are the heads of households. James W.

It was not until 1924 that Indians on reservations were citizens of the United States of America so they were not included on the federal decennial censuses that were made for congressional representation. The government took censuses of Indians in connection with Indian treaties. These treaties often resulted in the extinguishing of the Indian titles to the lands that they had occupied. The Indians either agreed to reduce their holdings or to move to an area less desired for white settlement. In some cases the treaties provided for the dissolution of the tribe and the allotment of the lands to individual Indians. Accordingly, the censuses were necessary to determine who was eligible for such allotments. The last treaty that the United States made with Indians was in 1871. Under the act of 4 July 1884, the agents or superintendents in charge of Indian reservations submitted censuses. While the dates for such enumerations do vary, the data usually include the English and/or Indian name of the person, roll number, age or date of birth, sex, and relationship to the head of family. Beginning in 1930 the censuses also provide the degree of Indian blood, marital status, ward status, and place of residence. In the years 1935, 1936, 1938, and 1939 the censuses show only additions and deletions, and most of the returns for 1940 are not included in this micropublication. It should be noted that there is no uniformity for the records. One tribe may have had a census in a given year while another tribe did not. The census rolls are arranged alphabetically by the name of the agency or other jurisdiction and thereunder by year. The series has 692 rolls, of which the library has 43 rolls. They include: Carter (Potawatomi Indians) Cherokee (North Carolina) 1898­1932 (roll 22) Cheyenne and Arapahoe 1887­1933 (roll 22) Choctaw (Mississippi) 1926­1939 Kiowa, Comanche, Apache, Caddo, and Wichita 1895­1939 Mexican Kickapoo (Mexican Kickapoo and Big Jim Band of Absentee Shawee Indians), 1899­1901 Ponca (Ponca and Tonkawa Indians), 1904­1927 Potawatomi 1891­1942 (rolls 392­95) Quapay (Eastern Shawnee, Miami, Modoc, Ottawa, Peoria, Quapay, Seneca, and Wyandot) (rolls 411­16, 488­89) Sac and Fox 1889­1919 (roll 493)

Whether the person is self-supporting or supported by the family, civilized industries, government, hunting, fishing, or natural products of the soil such as roots and berries. The enumerator was to record the inhabitants of each dwelling on a separate sheet. When he had difficulty obtaining the information, he frequently recorded several families together. The returns for Yakima include the name of the head of the household with the number, but not the names, of persons in each household. There are returns for Fort Simcoe and Tulalip, Snohomish County, Washington Territory; Fort Yates, Morton County [North] Dakota Territory; and Round Valley, Inyo County, California.

This is the alphabetical card index to the individuals serving in the regular forces of the Continental Army, militia units assigned to the Continental Army, volunteer units from the states, and naval forces organized by the Continental Congress during the Revolutionary War. It does not include the militia units and state volunteer units whose service was confined within the borders of their respective states. Since the fire of 8 November 1800 destroyed the original records, the records in this series comprise documents generated since that date. Private documents and records from other agencies sold or turned over to the federal government account for many of the records. For each individual his name, rank or profession or office, and unit are given. There are cross references to variant spellings. While the index is certainly the most inclusive one dealing with Revolutionary War participants, it is by no means complete. It not only includes soldiers who served in the American army but also contains entries for sailors, members of army staff departments, and other persons associated with the navy and army. The index has been transcribed by Virgil White as Index to Revolutionary War Service Records, R973.34/W588I/1995.

This register contains the bounty-land warrants, 1799­1805, surrendered for land in the Military District of Ohio. Under the Military Bounty Land Acts of 9 July 1788 and 3 March 1803, the federal government granted public lands to veterans and the heirs of veterans of the Revolutionary War. The act of 1 June 1796 set aside a reservation in Ohio for the use of these warrants. The successful applicant received a warrant entitling him to locate a specified number of acres in the public domain. The veteran would then present the warrant at a particular land office and ask for a patent for that particular tract. Under later acts a warrant could be exchanged for script which in turn could be used to pay for public land. The entries in this register are chronologically arranged and contain the name of person who presented the warrant, the name of the person who initially received the warrant for his military service, his rank, and a legal description of land in lot, quarter section, township, and range. Most of the warrants were surrendered in 4,000 acre clusters by individuals who bought warrants from veterans or their heirs. There were 14,220 land warrants issued under the act of 1788. Of the 14,220 land warrants issued under this act, most of those numbered between 1 and 6912 were destroyed in fires in 1800 and in the War of 1812.

The papers of the Continental Congress is a generic term that also includes the records of the Confederation Congresses and the records of the Constitutional Convention. Access to this most important primary source material for the Revolutionary War period is the five volume Index The Papers of the Continental Congress 1774­1789 by John P. Butler, R973.312/ B985I. Nearly all persons and all important subjects and places are included in the index. Items 1­8 were not included in Butler's index because they are featured in Index: Journals of the Continental Congress, 1774­1789, R328.73/U58I, which must also be used in conjunction with this index.

In addition to the journals of the Congress, the papers consist of reports of its committees, memorials, petitions, correspondence of the presidents, officers in the Continental Army, state and local officials, and private persons, papers relating to Indian tribes, and reports of military progress during the Revolution. It should be noted that the most important genealogical source, item 184, consisting of the oaths of allegiances to the United States was omitted from Butler's index on the grounds that it was already in alphabetical order. These are included in Nellie Protsman Waldenmaier's Some of the Earliest Oaths of Allegiance the United States of America, R973.34/W162S. It is essential to utilize the index because pages of some of the documents are widely separated from each other.

The library's holdings are incomplete. Compare the comments with the following entry describing M805. There are pension files for survivors, widows, rejected claims, and pre­1800 disability. A fire in the War Department in 1800 destroyed the Revolutionary War pension applications and related papers. While it is claimed that the destroyed files are indicated with the name of the soldier, his state organization of service, and the symbol "Dis. No Papers," perhaps as many as fifty percent are not. Some 80,000 other files are arranged in alphabetical order. If two or more files exist for individuals of the same name, the files are alphabetized by the state or organization in which the veteran served. Within each file the records are not arranged. A pension file might lack some documents if the veteran belonged to an organization from the state of Virginia. Those files pertaining to claims by heirs who applied for "half-pay" pensions under the act of 5 July 1832 were not included in this micropublication. Abstracts appear in Gaius M.

One should always compare the contents in this series with the nonselected documents in the preceding series. The rejected pension file of Fanny Blankenship, widow of Abel Blankenship, illustrates the shortcomings of the selected files. Only in the above series are the records which reveal that Jesse Blankenship, one of the affiants, for Fanny Blankenship, was a first cousin to Abel Blankenship. In addition to the relationship by consanguinity, Jesse Blankenship indicated that he was also related by affinity. His wife was a sister of Fanny Blankenship, and they were daughters of Drury Worsham.

U. S. Revolutionary War Bounty Land Warrants Used in the U.S. Military District of Ohio and Related Papers (Acts of 1788, 1803, 1806).

Military

Under the acts of 9 July 1788, 3 March 1803, and 15 April 1806, the Confederation Congress and the federal government issued bounty land warrants for military service in the Revolutionary War. They are dated 1789­1833 with related papers as late as 1880. The records in this micropublication do not include those issued by various state governments for the same service. The Continental Congress on 16 September 1776 initiated the bounty land program by offering free land in the public domain to officers and soldiers who continued to serve during the Revolutionary War. If they were killed, their representatives or heirs were to receive the bounty land. The acreage was proportional to the rank of the soldier. The amounts were: private and noncommissioned officers--100 acres ensign--150 acres lieutenant--200 acres captain--300 acres major--400 acres lieutenant colonel--450 acres colonel--500 acres In 1780 the resolution extended coverage to the following: brigadier general--850 acres general--1,100 acres. It was not until 1 June 1796 the Congress reserved a 4,000 square-mile tract in the Northwest Territory. It became known as the United States Military District of Ohio. The act specified that the minimum quantity of land which could be taken was a quarter township of 4,000 acres. It was necessary for people to pool their rights. Warrant holders would entrust their warrants to an agent who would locate the land and receive a patent. The agent would then redistribute the land among the original warrant holders and issue each one a deed. The distribution of the land did not occur in a timely manner. By the end of 1802 about 14,000 warrants had been issued for 1,612,605 acres of which 552,602 acres had not been located. Some soldiers had not completed their claims, and others had made late applications. Accordingly, Congress provided additional time for making claims under the act of 3 March 1803 which was amended 15 April 1806. Until 1830 all U.S. Revolutionary War bounty land warrants had to be used to locate land in the U.S. Military District of Ohio. Beginning in 1830 scrip certificates could be issued in exchange for unused warrants. These could be used to purchase lands in Ohio, Indiana, and Illinois. The act of 27 July 1842 allowed the scrip to be used for any land open in the public domain. The warrant has the date of issuance, the name and rank of the veteran, his state of enlistment, and, if applicable, the name of the heir or assignee. They are arranged by date of act and thereunder in numerical sequence. Fires in the War Department in 1800 and 1814 destroyed most of the warrants numbered 1 to 6912 so that the only documents in these files are a few copies of patents. Warrants 6913 and following are intact.

The second series of warrants consist of those issued under the acts of 3 March 1803 and 15 April 1806 of 2119 warrants issued with an additional 18 warrants under later acts. Most of the warrants in the second series contain a certificate of location indicating where the bounty land was located in the U.S. Military District of Ohio. If there is no such certificate, there is usually a legal description of the land consisting of four sets of numbers indicating (1) lot, (2) quarter of section, (3) township, and (4) range. The first roll of the micropublication contains the index to the register for the first series. It is in alphabetical order by the initial letter of the surname of the holder of the warrant who registered and located his warrant between 1799 and 1805. In addition to his name there is the warrant number, acreage, and the page number. The register itself contains the entries in chronological order giving the date of registration, name of patentee, the name and rank of the warrantee, and a legal description. The legal description is provided for each quarter township since the law required that bounty land be granted in 4,000 acre tract. The second series of warrants issued under the acts of 1803 and 1806 has an index which gives the veteran's name, his warrant number, and the act of issuance. There may also be a cross-reference notation to the scrip application number. The entries date from 1804 to 1835. An entry has the name of one who presented the warrant, the warrant number, the name and service rank of the warrantee, acreage, location by lot, township, and range, date of patent, and to whom the patent was delivered.

The entries are arranged within two periods of time covering March 1801­March 1809 and September 1809­September 1815. Within each period there are sections for states and territory. Within each state the entries are alphabetical by the initial letter of the surname. The name of the pensioner, his rank, and semi-annual allowance are given. Some entries report dates of death; others reveal movement from one state or territory to another. Since all of the pension application files prior to 1800 were destroyed, these lists are even more valuable for showing who were pensioners. The lists cover both Revolutionary and post-Revolutionary veterans, but do not indicate the military service upon which the pensioner qualified.

This alphabetical name index consists of the face side of each envelope containing relevant documents. It shows the name of the veteran, the name of the widow if any, service data, pension application and certificate numbers; and/or a bounty-land warrant application number. In many instances dates and places of nativity and death of the veterans also appear. Those applications involving widows frequently include the maiden name of the widow and the date and place of her marriage to the veteran. It should be noted that the pension applications were provided by acts of Congress in 1871 and 1878. The former provided pensions to veterans who had served sixty days or had been cited by Congress for specific service provided they had not adhered to the Confederate cause, and to many widows of such veterans provided the marriage had taken place before the treaty of peace in 1815. The latter act provided for pensions to veterans who had served fourteen days or been in any engagement and to widows of such veterans. Obviously, many veterans and widows of veterans of the War of 1812 had died before they could enjoy the benefits of these acts in the 1870s.

With the imminent possibility of war in 1811, Congress authorized bounty lands to stimulate enlistments in the U.S. Army. Those who enlisted for five years would receive $16 and 160 acres. In the course of the war when the situation became grave, Congress on 10 December 1814 promised those who would enlist for the duration of the war 320 acres. Officers were ineligible for bounty lands under both of these acts. Individuals who were promoted to officer grade forfeited their right to bounty land. The law specifically excluded those who served in the state militias and in volunteer units. Eventually there were bounty land reserves established. They were in Illinois, Missouri, and Arkansas. The warrants had to be redeemed in these tracts. If the warrant had not been redeemed by 1842, it could be used to locate land anywhere in the public domain. Finding aids for these records include (1) Katheren Christensen's Arkansas Military Bounty Grants (War of 182), R929.3/A8ZC, (2) War of 1812 Bounty Lands in Illinois, R929.373/U58W/1977, (3) Maxine Dunaway, Missouri Military Land Warrants, War of 1812, R929.3778/D897M, and (4) Military Land Warrants in Missouri 1819, R929.3778/G489A/1988.

One of the Alien and Sedition Acts was the basis for restrictions on aliens during the War of 1812. By that law alien enemies were all male aliens, age 14 or older, who were citizens of a nation formally at war with the United States. The Department of State on 7 July 1812 required all British subjects to report to the U.S. marshals in the states and territories and provide the following: name, age, length of residence, names of family members, place of residence, occupation, and whether they had applied for citizenship. The marshals were to make their returns to the Department of State. Kenneth Scott's British Aliens in the United States during the War of 1812, R929.373/S427B, includes abstracts from these records.

The pension indexed in this group of records relate to claims based on death or disability incurred in the service rendered after the Revolutionary War in 1783 and prior to 14 April 1862 in the Regular Army, Navy, or Marine Corps. It excludes, however, service in the War of 1812. In addition to Indian War service, pensions to disabled veterans or dependents may have been established for service in the Mexican War and in some case in the Civil War in the U.S. forces. Old war pension files are limited to those who served in the regular forces so volunteers in units in a particular war are not included in the series. The index shows the name of the veteran, the name and class of dependent(s) if any, service data, and the application or file number. If the claim was approved, the certificate number and state from the which the claim was made will be given. This index has been published as Index to Old Wars Pension Files 1815­1926 by Virgil D. White, R929.373/W88I/1983.

The entries in these ledgers are arranged by act of Congress under which the payment was made and thereunder by name of pension agency. The pensioners' names appear in order by the initial letter of the surname. Each volume covers a specific period of time. Succeeding payments are in the following volume(s). Each entry shows the name of the pensioner, the name of the veteran if different, the name of the pension agency, and the quarter and year of the last payment. If the entry has a date of the death at the end of line, the heirs or legal representative of the pensioner claimed the unpaid balance due to the pensioner. The Revolutionary War pension file in M804 or M805 identifies the act of Congress and pension agency of each pensioner needed to gain access to these records. One can order the final payment record from the National Archives if the act of Congress, pension agency, and date of death of the pensioner taken from these ledgers are known. Rolls 15­23 involve widow pensions.

This alphabetical name index relates to pensions based on service performed in 1846­1848. Most of the records are based upon an act of Congress of 1877 providing pensions for veterans who had served sixty days or to their unremarried widows. The index gives the name of the veteran, the name and class of his dependent, service data, the application number, and for an approved claim, a pension certificate number, and the state from which the claim was made. Pension applications concerning men who were disabled or killed in service do not appear in the index; instead, they appear in the Old War Index to Pension Files. This index has been printed in three different versions: Barbara S. Wolfe, An Index to Mexican War Pension Applications, R973.62/W855I/1985; Virgil D.

By act of Congress of 3 March 1871, the President established a commission to receive, examine, and consider the claims of those citizens who had remained loyal to the United States of America during the Civil War and who had stores or supplies taken from them or furnished by them to the Army during the insurrection. The act of 11 May 1872 extended coverage to property used by the Navy. The commissioners had to be satisfied of the loyalty of the claimant and had to certify the amount, nature, and value of the property involved. They held their sessions in Washington and reported their findings to the House of Representatives at the beginning of each session of Congress. Rolls 2 to 9 contain correspondence from claimants, their attorneys, and informers submitting information about the loyalty of the claimants. The letters are not indexed. Roll 10 to 12 are letters of special agents involving recommendations and complaints. The last roll is the index to the action taken on the 22,298 claims and is arranged alphabetically by name of claimant. Southern Loyalists in the Civil War, The Southern Claims Commission by Gray B. Mills, R973.745/M657S/1994, provides access to the files and gives instructions for obtaining copies.

The Veteran Reserve Corps were deserving officers and enlisted men who were unfit for active service because of wounds or disease contracted in the line of duty but who were capable of performing garrison duty. Soldiers and officers absent from duty and in hospitals were also assigned to the corps. Soldiers in convalescent camps or under the care of medical officers but who were capable of serving as cooks, nurses, orderlies in hospitals, clerks, or guards in public buildings also were in the corps. When first authorized 28 April 1863, it was known as the "Invalid Corps," but on 18 March 1864 became the Veteran Reserve Corps.

The name of the veteran, the name of his widow, his rank, company, regiment, or vessel, the dates of enlistment and discharge, length of service in years, months, and days, post office address, nature of any disability, and any additional remarks. The records are arranged by state and thereunder by county. It is wise to bear in mind that by 1890 Reconstruction had ended, and Southerners were once again in control. Whether to irritate the former victorious government or because of ignorance, many enumerators included former CSA veterans as well so these records in some instances may be the only proof of service for veterans of the Confederate Army and Navy. Numerical designations of military units will need to be investigated to ascertain if the unit served in the USA or the CSA. The indexes to these records are by state or territory.

Confederate prisoners of war could gain their release from prison by enlisting in the Union Army. They were known as "Galvanized Yankees." The first of these units was raised at Point Lookout, Maryland from January to April 1864. It became the 1st U.S. Volunteer Infantry. Soon after taking up their assignment in routine police duty in Norfolk and Portsmouth, Virginia, the unit was ordered to the Northwestern Frontier to help quell the uprisings of the Plains Indians. They did so because Gen. U.S. Grant did not feel that the ex-Confederates should be assigned to areas where they would have to fight their former comrades. Five additional regiments were raised from prisoners incarcerated at Rock Island, Alton, Camp Douglas, and Camp Morton in Illinois; Columbus, Ohio; and Point Lockout, Md. from September 1864 to May 1865. In the West they protected the settlers from the Indians, guarded survey parties of the Union Pacific Railroad, escorted supply trains, and rebuilt telegraph lines. A soldier's file contains his name, rank, unit, enlistment papers, physical description giving height, age, hair color, place of nativity, and muster rolls. Medical reports, death records, inventories of effects, and desertions are also indicated. It is important to note that the task of record-keeping for these soldiers was not always followed. For some individuals only the enlistment papers exist; therefore, no service record file was ever created. All of these personal papers appear alphabetically on the last roll of the series. Access to these records is partially available through micropublication Indexes to Compiled Service Records of Volunteer Union Soldiers Who Served in Organizations Not Raised by States or Territories (M1290). Rolls 18 to 22 are one alphabetical index to this set, and rolls 23 to 26 are another index. It is necessary to check both indexes although the latter is devoted to the Confederate prisoners of war who enlisted in the U.S. Army. If no relevant entry is found, each alphabetical sequence should then searched.

These are the service records of Confederate soldiers who served in military organizations raised directly or otherwise formed by the Confederate Government and who, therefore, are not identified with any one state. Two or three of these organizations seem to have been originally considered to be units of the Confederate Regular Army. Several others were raised among the natives of Indian Territory, and one was made up of foreigners who were recruited from among Union prisoners of war. The Corps of Engineers, the Nitre and Mining Bureau, the Signal Corps, and bands were formed chiefly from personnel transferred from other organizations. Most of the cavalry and infantry units, however, were the result either of bringing together smaller units that had been raised separately from two or more states or of consolidating units from different states that needed to be strengthened because of losses in personnel or other deficiencies. Artillery units often resulted from grouping separate batteries for better tactical control. The records consist of a jacket envelope for each soldier, labeled with his name, rank, and unit or special corps in which he served. Following are card abstracts of entries relating to the soldier as found in original muster rolls, returns, rosters, pay rolls, appointment books, hospital registers, Union prison registers and rolls, parole lsits, and inspection records. In addition there are also the originals of any papers relating solely to the particular soldier. The records are arranged according to an organizational breakdown ending with the regiment or the independent battalion or company. Under each unit are the service records of individual soldiers arranged alphabetically. In the case of a special corps whose personnel did not belong to a unit at or below the regimental level, there is a separate series of service records arranged alphabetically by the soldier's surname. Another series for the personnel of bands is similarly arranged. Preceding the jacket envelopes for the soldiers in each unit are cards on which the officers of that unit are listed followed by caption cards for muster-in and muster-out rolls showing the exact caption of the rolls that were copied and record-of-event cards indicating the activities in which any part of the unit had been engaged. Because of the irregular way in which most of these units were organized, there are relatively few caption cards. Record-of-event cards are more numerous but sometimes do not contain any account of happenings because no such notation was made in the original record.

These files exist in large measure because Southern citizens filed claims with the federal government seeking compensation for property losses allegedly inflicted by Union forces in the Civil War. If the federal government could prove that a claimant had been disloyal by serving in the Confederacy, the claim could be disallowed and a considerable expense could be avoided. Many claims of Southerners were from the owners of vessels or their heirs.

There are files for vessels for carrying freight and passengers for the Confederacy as well as files for vessels in Confederate naval service. There are also files pertaining to foreign vessels, notably British. Sometimes Union merchant or naval vessels that engaged, entered, and departed Southern ports also appear. Documents might include travel vouchers for passengers and freight, receipts, invoices, claims, contracts, bills of lading, passenger and crew lists, muster rolls and payrolls, insurance policies, accounts of proceedings, court decrees, but a file may contain no original records. Be aware that vessels, like females, underwent name changes, and cross references to such may not appear.

Vicksburg, located between Memphis and New Orleans, on the east bank of the Mississippi was the focal point of Maj. Gen. Ulysses S. Grant's operations in 1862­1863. He attacked the city on 19 May 1863 and again on the 22nd. Both assaults were repulsed with heavy losses so Grant resorted to laying siege by building a twelve-mile siege line around the city. By the middle of June he had 77,000 federal forces surrounding the city. Vicksburg capitulated on 4 July 1863. The surrender of the fortification brought 29,000 Confederate prisoners into Union control. Combined with the simultaneous defeat of the Army of Northern Virginia at Gettysburg, the fall of Vicksburg was a severe psychological blow to the Confederacy and a severe loss of manpower. These records give the name of each prisoner, his rank, regiment, company, and date and place of capture as well as remarks. Lists are alphabetical by state of origin, thereunder by unit (cavalry, artillery, and infantry), thereunder by regiment number, and often, thereunder by company.

The federal government compiled these records in order to process claims for reimbursements from loyal Southern citizens who had suffered damages or losses. Such records indicated loyalty to the Confederacy, and the Southern Claims Commission would likely disqualify a claim involving someone in these records. The library's holdings are incomplete.

Since individuals from many places constituted units of volunteers for the Philippine Insurrection in 1899­1902, the unit designations do not carry the state of territory. Even if the unit was formed by volunteers from a single state of territory, there is no geographical designation. The records are for Americans from the United States in the Philippines. There are no records of Filipinos. The Puerto Rican Regiment of U.S. Volunteers, while it was organized in the Philippines, remained in Puerto Rico. The latter do not appear in this index but instead appear in the General Index to Compiled Service Records of Volunteer Soldiers Who Served During the War with Spain.

The larger cities in the country had multiple draft boards at the time of World War. If the street address where a family is known, the maps in this collection can be used to identify the particular draft board in order to know which set of records to check. Since the registrants are alphabetical within each draft board, identifying the proper board can reduce the searching time immensely. If the street address is not known, a city directory or a census for 1910 or 1920 may help identify the street address. There are maps for the cities of Albany, NY; Atlanta, GA; Baltimore, MD; Boston, MA; Buffalo, NY; Chicago, IL; Cincinnati, OH; Cleveland, OH; Indianapolis, IN; Jersey City, NJ; Kansas City, MO; Los Angeles, CA; Louisville, KY; Luzerne Co., PA; Milwaukee, WI; Minneapolis, MN; New Orleans, LA; New York City, NY; Philadelphia, PA; Pittsburgh, PA; Providence, RI; St. Louis, MO; St. Paul, MN; San Francisco, CA; Seattle, WA; Syracuse, NY; and Washington, DC.

This index to pension files primarily concerns pensions granted for service in the Army, Navy, and Marine Corps for service performed between the outbreak of the Civil War in 1861 and 1916. Most of these relate to service in the Civil War although some files relate to earlier service of a Union Civil War soldier, e.g., a soldier who also fought in the Mexican War or in one of the Indian campaigns. Others are for pensions for service in the Spanish American War, the Philippine Insurrection, the Boxer, Rebellion, and the regular Army. It will also be necessary to consult the Old War Index to Pension Files, 1815­1926 for applications if the veteran died or was disabled in the first year of the Civil War. It should be emphasized that no Confederate veterans qualified for federal pensions under the legislation affecting Civil War service unless, of course, they switched their allegiance before the end of the war. Pensions for Confederate soldiers and their dependents were the responsibility of the states which had been part of the Confederacy or were border states with divided sympathies. The index cards are arranged alphabetically by the name of the veteran. There are extensive references to aliases indicating that the switching of identities was prevalent in post-bellum nineteenthcentury society. The index card also gives the class of the soldier's dependent (e.g., widow, children, or parents), service data, application number, and certificate number and state from which the claim was made for approved claims.

These registers of enlistments are contained in some 140 large volumes. There are some entries as early as 1793. They summarize the information found chiefly in the enlistment papers. For the years 1798­1821, they also contain the information in the muster rolls, inspection rolls, and some other rolls. For the most part the records are arranged by date of enlistment in chronological groups as follows: a) 1793­May 15, 1858. Each of the 26 registers contains entries for surnames beginning with one or more letters of the alphabet. There is some overlapping. The volumes with the initial letter or letters of the surnames are: A=1 B = 2, 3, 4 C = 5, 6 D=8 D, E, H = 7 F=9 G = 10

These nine registers contain entries that are grouped alphabetically according to the initial letter of the surname of the enlisted man and thereunder according to the initial letter of the forename. The initial letter of the surnames included in each volume are: A, B, C, D = 27 B = 28 D, E, F = 29 G, H = 30 F, J, K = 31 L, M = 32 N, O, P, Q, R = 33 S, T = 34 U, V, W, Y, Z = 35 c) 1 July 1821­31 October 1914. There is usually a register for each year although some registers cover a longer period of time. Entries are arranged alphabetically by the initial letter of the surname, and thereunder alphabetically by the initial letter of the given name. Each entry relates to a single enlistment and is recorded on one line extending across two facing pages. The entries vary in detail. Those prior to 15 May 1815 are the most fragmentary. A full entry shows the name of the enlisted man, the date, place, and period of enlistment or reenlistment; the name of the town, county, or state where he was born; his occupation and personal description; the designation of his regiment and company; and the date and nature of his separation from the service. Rolls 69­81 contain the following special categories: Miscellaneous including Mounted Rangers 1832­1833 and Puerto Rico Provincial Infantry, 1901­ 1914 Indian Scouts 1866­1877, 1878­1914 Philippine Scouts 1866­1877, 1878­1914 Ordnance, Commissary, Quartermaster Sergeants, Clerks, and Messengers Hospital Stewards Prisoners David L.

It is believed that they were styled "buffalo soldiers" because of the similarity between the coarse hair and dark skin of the soldiers and the coats of the buffalo.

These are general army courts-martial rather than regimental courts-martial. (The latter deal with enlisted men or cadets or offenses of a less serious nature). In addition there are also proceedings of courts of inquiry and of military commissions. The former are investigative bodies without power to impose punishments. The latter are special courts set up under martial law for the investigation and trial of private citizens. The data pertain to trials of officers and trials for serious offenses. The registers are in chronological order with some overlapping during the Civil War years. There are seven volumes in this set. The entries in volumes 1, 2, 3 5, 8, 13, 15, 16 and 17 are arranged alphabetically by the initial letter of the surname of the defendant and thereunder, except for volume 1, by date. The entries for volumes 4, 6, 7, 9, 10, 12, and 14 are strictly in alphabetical order. It was not until 1829 the clerks in the War Office arranged the files into 25 groups without regard to date with 15 to 150 cases per group. After 1829 the clerks entered the records upon their receipt. An entry gives the name of the soldier tried, his rank and unit, the month and year of the trial, the location of the trail, the name of the president of the court, the name of the judge advocate prosecuting the case, and the sentence imposed by the court. After the first volume the sentence imposed by the court is omitted. N.B. There was a series of court-martial case files which were lost in the civil War but were later recovered by the Judge Advocate General. They do not appear in M1105. Two books by Thomas P. Lowry, The Story the Soldiers Wouldn't Tell: Sex in the Civil War, R973.71/L921S/1994, and Tarnished Eagles: The Courts-Martial of Fifty Union Colonels and Lieutenant Colonels, 343.73014/L921T/ 1998 (the latter in the History and Social Sciences Division) reveal the amount of variety of detail to be found in these records.

This is the index to general correspondence of the Record and Pension Office. Such inquiries could involve minors who had enlisted under assumed names and who sought discharge certificates in their true names, certificates in lieu of lost discharges, medals of honor for meritorious and distinguished services rendered, removal of charges of desertion, information needed for admission to homes for disabled soldiers or to complete the records of adjutants general of the states, and information relating to the strength or service of the organizational units. Women who believed themselves to be the lawful widow, veterans seeking to learn the fate or whereabouts of fellow servicemen, and descendants seeking proof of service of an ancestor for membership in an hereditary society such as the Daughters of the American Revolution or Sons of Union Veterans often wrote giving in detail much genealogical data. Each index card gives the name of the soldier, his organization of service, the name of the person making the inquiry, the subject of the inquiry, and the file number. Surnames of alternative spelling are interfiled as though they were spelled the same so that Nease, Neece, Neice, Neass, and Nece will be arranged alphabetically under the given names or initials.

This two-volume register registers of burials at military posts, camps, and stations covers the period from 1768 to 1921 with the bulk of the burials being between 1860 and 1890. Burials before 1883 in cemeteries which were still active may be featured in both volumes. The registers are arranged alphabetically by the name of the military post and thereunder usually in rough chronological order by date of burial. Those being interred included soldiers of the Regular Army and of the Union Army (volunteers). There are also civilians, usually wives and children of military personnel, as well as some Confederate Army soldiers. An entry includes the name, rank, company, regiment, date of death, the location of the grave as to section and number, and remarks. In the latter would be such comments as the cause of death, a civilian's relationship to a soldier, or removal to another cemetery such as to a national cemetery. Types of grave markers included headboard, cross, broken stone, or marble slab may also appear. A remark such as "2903 of 1873" indicates that correspondence piece numbered 2903 in the year 1873 received by the Quartermaster General was the basis for the information in the entry. The earliest entry is that of Edward Pursley in 1768 at Fort Winthrop (alias For Independence or Fort Warren), Massachusetts; the latest is for an unnamed civilian at Fort Apache, Arizona in 1921. Fort Columbus in New York City had several burials dating from the 1790s.

Lyman Copeland Draper (1815­1891) was primarily interested in the trans-Allegheny West covering western Virginia, North Carolina, and South Carolina, parts of Georgia and Alabama, the Ohio River Valley, and sections of the Mississippi River Valley. Some of his material also relates to New York and New England. His particular focus was the American Revolution and the frontier conflicts from the 1740s to the end of the War of 1812. His view of history was that it was the hero who made history. His method was to record the personal reminiscences of frontiersmen, soldiers, and their descendants. He transcribed records, corresponded extensively, submitted questionnaires, and acquired maps, genealogies, photographs, portraits, and private papers. He also sought official papers, but he would transcribe them if he could not obtain the originals. Draper between 1843 and 1848 traveled extensively in the southeast and middle states amassing many notebooks on such figures as Daniel Boone and George Rogers Clark. He became corresponding secretary of the State Historical Society of Wisconsin and continued to amass historical data on his life-long project.

Documentary Relations of the Southwest.
Microfiche 76 fiche
Microfiche
US
This collection is subdivided into three categories, the Master Lists and Indexes 31 microfiche, Biofile Southwest 38 microfiche, and the Biodex Southwest 7 microfiche. The first contains the indexes to primary documents dealing with the greater Southwest for the period 1520 to 1820--an era corresponding broadly to the Spanish colonial era. The geographical area concerned approximates that of the colonial frontiers of northern New Spain, i.e., the area bounded by the 22nd to 38th parallels of north latitude and by the 92nd to 123 meridians of west longitude. It should be noted that the indexes do not consist of every name contained in every collection surveyed. Records of a routine nature, e.g. slave sales or military musters, are not indexed. In the case of small collections, however, all names in the documents are indexed. Records used in the preparation of this set include the critical portions of the Archivo Historico del Hidalgo de Parral, Chihuahua, which was the principal archive of Nueva Vizcaya. Over the years the latter included Arizona, Chichuhua, Coahuila, Durango, Sinaloa, and Sonora. Supplementing these records are documents from the Archivo General de Indias (AGI-sevilla), the Archivo General de la Lacio (AGN-Mexico City), the Archivo Historico de Hacienda (AHH-Mexico City), the Spanish Archives of New Mexico Part 2 (SANM 2-Santa Fe), the Bexar Archives of San Antonio up to the year 1790 (NLBLAC-Austin), and fifteen smaller archives.

In using the DRSW files, one should consult the person, place or subject index to find relevant listings. These entries will provide a DRSW identification number, e.g., Garcia, Jose 11-03­1712 0111-00123. The serial number 0100-00123, is then found in the master list. The master entry contains all the available information to enable the researcher to determine whether the full record should be obtained from the proper depository or from an institution holding microform copy of the manuscripts. The second portion, The Biofile Southwest, is a computer generated, biographical dictionary of individuals appearing in the historical record of northern New Spain. It consists of a core of 19,684 names with attached biographical data. References to another 63,000 names with documentary citations appear alphabetically to aid in locating information. The last section, the Biodex Southwest, contains 44,715 found in 150 major secondary works on the colonial Southwest. It is not necessarily definitive in that some references may be omitted for the same individual and some individuals may be omitted from this index. The Documentary Relations Southwest is located at the Arizona State Museum at the University of Arizona, Tuscon, Arizona.

The first roll covering the years 1789­1818 documents the dates of appointment of postmasters. It is chronologically arranged. The next three rolls are generally in alphabetical order by the name of the post office nationally. After 1814 the records generally indicate when the post office was established, but before 1824 the names of the counties in which the post offices are located are not given. These records have been used in Edith F. Axelson's Virginia Postmasters and Post Offices 1789­ 1732, R383.49755/A969V/1991. In United States Post Offices 1828­1832, R910.30973/U58/1992, appears the listing of 11,747 of the post offices. One section gives the name of the post office followed by the county and state in which it was located. The other section lists the states in alphabetical in order. The counties are alphabetically arranged within each state and have a listing of all of the post offices within each county. The compiler indicated that there are omissions from the book when the original manuscript was illegible.

With the adoption of the Constitution in 1789, passports have been issued by the federal government. Prior to 1856, however, the sole authority for doing so did not rest with the State Department. During the Civil War between 19 August 1861 and 17 March 1862 and during World War I by executive order of 15 December 1915, the federal government required passports. With these two exceptions it was not until 22 May 1918 that it was unlawful for Americans to travel abroad without a valid passport. The law lapsed with the formal termination of the war through treaties with Austria, Hungary, and Germany in 1921. On 21 June 1941 the government once more required American citizens to have a passport for travel outside of the country. A passport may contain the applicant's marital status, occupation or business, date and place of nativity, naturalization [if foreign born], and physical description. There may also be letters and affidavits from friends and family concerning the applicants' citizenship, residence, and character. The records are arranged in various series chronologically. While there are no applications for 1813­1829 and 1832, there are some copies and some originals. Most applications have an assigned number to facilitate proper identification.

The indexes are known as registers. The first nine rolls contain the indexes for the period 21 December 1810­February 1906. A typical entry contains the date and number of the application, the applicant's name, and for the years 1834­1849 the applicant's age and physical characteristics. The coverage in time overlaps in some of the registers, and some entries may appear in more than one register. Civil War passports have a special register. The arrangement of the registers will either be chronological or alphabetical by the first three letters of the applicant's surname and thereunder chronological. Rolls 10 and 11 are the indexes to emergency passports which U.S. consular officials and diplomatic officers abroad issued to U.S. citizens between 1874 and 1906. The entries are alphabetical and show the location of the governmental office which processed the application. Roll 12 contains special indexes for the years 1829­1894 for passports issued to diplomatic and consular staff, military attaches, secretaries of legations, and other governmental personnel and their families. The entries are alphabetically arranged. The last roll, number 13, contains the index to passport applications received by the New York Passport Office between 24 August 1861 and 24 February 1862. An entry provides the date, name of applicant, and passport number. The entries are arranged alphabetically by the initial letter of the surname and thereunder chronologically. Roll 13 also has five registers of miscellaneous special passports. These include a register of special passports issued at the New York from 1862 to 1869, a register of special passports issued Secretaries of State between 1836 and 1864, special courier passports from 1865 to 1869, fees for passports received by J. B. Jones in 1867, and the passport account of George F. Baker 1864­1869. There is a card file index in the National Archives to the passport applications for the years 1850­ 1852 and 1860­1880.
