Adjutant General Reports of the Regular or Militia/National Guard are a useful tool for researchers to track down officers serving in the armies of the United States. It is broken down into staff and line with a alphabetical lisitng of officers at the end. A caution, one has to check several registers to see if a person supposedly an officer is on earlier registers as the subject may have died, woumded and resigned for wounds and disabilities, a further caution, check the spelling as I have found that names are not always what they seem.
