Record Group Number: 001025
Series/Collection Number: .S 2180
Creator: National Archives Microfilm Publications.
Title, Dates: Compiled service records of volunteer Union soldiers who served in organizations from the State of Georgia, 1862-1865.
Amount: 1.00 microfilm reel 16 mm.
Medium Included:
Organization/Arrangement: Arranged alphabetically.
Terms Governing Use:
Biographical/Historical:     It is not commonly known that in addition to the Confederate units that were raised in Georgia during the Civil War, one battalion of infantry was organized in the state to serve in the Union Army. This unit was the First Battalion of Georgia, Infantry.
Summary:     The compiled service records consist of a jacket-envelope for each soldier, labeled with his name, his rank, and the unit in which he served and typically containing (1) card abstracts of entries relating to the soldier as found in original muster rolls, returns, hospital rolls, descriptive books, and lists of deserters; and (2) the originals of any papers relating solely to the particular soldier.  There are cross-references for soldiers' names that appeared in the records under more than one spelling.
    Preceding the jacket-envelopes for the individual soldiers in each organizational unit are envelopes containing record of events cards giving the stations, movements, or activities of the unit or a part of it, and sometimes information relating to its organization or composition.  There also is a name index to certain original numbered documents filed with regimental papers that are among another series of records of the Adjutant General's Office in the National Archives.  These numbered documents, which are not filmed in this microcopy, are similar to the original records (personal papers) filed in the jacket-envelopes of individual soldiers, except that each appears to contain information relating to two or more soldiers and therefore could not be filed with the records of any one soldier.
    Following the series of jacket-envelopes for all the organizational units are separate series of card abstracts and personal papers of soldiers whose names were not listed on the regular rolls and consequently there was not enough evidence to justify establishing individual compiled service records for them.
