Biographical/Historical:     Florida's state militia has existed since territorial days, but the 1885 Constitution allowed for a stronger, better-funded, and better-organized state militia. In 1887, the Florida State Troops organized under the leadership of Adjutant General David Lang. By the end of the 19th-century, the Florida State Troops consisted of 20 companies organized into battalions instead of regiments. The Florida State Troops became the Florida National Guard in 1909.

Summary:     This series consists of a leather-bound volume containing a roster of the officers and enlisted men of the Second Regiment, Florida State Troops, as well as the regimental orders issued by the unit. Information includes name, rank, date enlisted, promotions, and date discharged for each soldier. A separate column lists equipment issued to the company and the company's requisitions. The orders section of the volume contains directives from the regimental commanders to his subordinates. Most of the orders deal with personnel changes such as promotions, discharges, changes in assignment, etc.
