Folio, 18" x 20". Cream-colored cloth boards [light soil]. 450 pp, most in manuscript with names of, and payroll information for, hundreds of officers in over fifty New York infantry regiments 1861-1865: the 127th-154th, 156th-165th, 168th-170th, 173d-179th, 182d, 184th-188th. Each page divided into columns: first column for soldier's name followed by twelve monthly columns; six lines beneath each soldier's name, labeled with the years 1861-1866; on these six lines are various notations of payments to each soldier. Several large repairs with cloth tape [primarily to a few outer leaves in front and back], covering some manuscript notations, some of which are obscured and some visible through the cloth; some bottom blank corners repaired. Occasional cloth tape repair of inner leaves, most pages in excellent condition. Very Good.
Many of these regiments fought at Gettysburg and the other major battles of the Civil War. Item #22818
