Subject: [SC] NEW Resource for Researching Army Officers
I would like to announce the availability of one of the most important works
I have seen for researching ancestors who were officers in the U.S. Army.
This important work covers the Revoluntionary War, War of 1812, War with
Mexico, and the Civil War era.
I will provide a FREE lookup in this CD for individual names only. Please
not request a listing of ALL JONESes on the outside chance that you had one
in the bunch.
Heitman's Historical Register and Dictionary of the United States Army
This is a complete list of commissioned officers of the U.S. from the
organization of the Army, September 29, 1789, to the year of the list's
original publication in 1903, giving the officers' full names and showing
their services as cadets and all services as officers or enlisted men,
in the regular or volunteer service. The heart of the work, Part II, an
alphabetical listing of the officers, runs to some 20,000 entries. Each
contains a brief paragraph on the officer giving his state or country where
born, state from which originally appointed, date of induction, rank, date
discharge, promotions, medals, battles participated in, and, in about a
of the entries, date of death after leaving the Army. This monumental book
actually a lot more than a listing of the officer corps, as crucial as that
is. Rather, it is a handbook on the men, events, and terminology of American
military life during the years of its coverage.
Heitman's Historical Register is the most extensive coverage of Civil War
Officers as well as every regular officer who served during the period of
1783 to 1903. It contains almost 20,000 brief biographies and service
of now obscure figures and synopsis info on the regular army units with a
listing of Field Grade Officers and their service. Army organizations,
strength, battles, actions, C.S. general officers and contract surgeons.
>From a reviewer:
A reader from Newport, RI
Heitman's register is a must for any serious (by this I mean one who's
interests extend beyond battles and weapons) student of the U.S. Army before
1900. The register has information on every regular army and all generals
including promotions, assignments, awards, organization tables, lists of key
