Note. — All names are given exactly as they appear on the original records. The order of
arrangement of the facta of service in each individual record given is the same, as nearly as pos-
sible, as the original entries, and is as follows : The name; the place of residence, if given; the
rank; the kind of document whereon the record appears; the enlistment and discbarge, if
given; the time of service; remarks.

A discrepancy will sometimes be notedbetween the service given and the actual service as
figured between the dates of enlistment and discharge. The difference is accounted for by the
practice of including, with service performed, a time allowance for travel on the basis of one
day for every 20 miles out or home. As the same name may appear under various forms, each
carrying some portion of a record of service, it is necessary in order to obtain the complete
record, as far as preserved, of any given Individual, to examine all the forms under which
a name is stated to appear in the Record Index.
