Lincoln, Nebeaska, March 28^ 1888.

The within Roster has been carefully compiled, by authority
of Governor Thayer and under the direction of Adjutant
General A. V. Cole, from records now on ale in the Adjutant
General's Office, and from official information from other
sources. The names have, as far as possible, been alphabetic-
ally arranged, and dates are corrected according to the best
official data. They often differ in the original records them-
selves, and in such case I have taken the best authority after
careful search, or the record made nearest the date of the event
in question, such as monthly returns, etc. Names have also
" ^en carefully examined and the spelling thereof corrected
/om original enlistment papers, or from signatures found, as
in clothing books, etc.

In case, therefore, of any question as to name or date arising
as between that given in this book and any single original rec-
ord or other paper, the book should be depended upon until
careful search has verified it, or given additional and satis-
factory proof of its error.
