^EXPLANATIONS.



Errors or omissions, if any, as to names, dates, &c., will be immediately reported
to tlie Adjutant Oeneral by the officers concerned.

When a regiment was not mustered out in time to have that fact appear on this
Eegister, the roster of its officers is made up to August 31, 1865, (except colored troops. )

Where an organization is out of service, the roster is given as it stood at the date
of muster out.

When, at any time, one organization is transferred to or consolidated with another,
the roster of its officers is given as it stoo3 at that time.

In the roster the date of each officer's rank is placed opposite his name.

The Orders issued subsequent to August 31, 1865, announcing brevet appoint-
ments, were not completed in time to enter the appointments on the register of the
regiments from the New England States.

Where the names of battles in which organizations have borne an honorable part,
and which they are entitled to bear ou their colors, have been announced in Orders
by the Department or Military Division Commanders, they are given at the head of
the roster of officers.

The names of enlisted men who have received medals of honor are given at the
foot of the roster of officers of each regiment.

The date opposite each officer's name in the list of casualties, is the date of casualty.

The letters "a. w. m." opposite a name in the roster indicate that the' officer has
been appointed, but never mustered into the service of the United States in the
grade in which he appears. — (See paragraphs 114 and 120 Mustering Regulations.)

In the list of casualties italics indicate that the officer whose name appears itali-
cised was not mustered into service in the grade in which he appears.
