    Civil War muster roll.

    Actually it is not a muster roll. It is called a Soldier's Memorial.

    These hand colored lithographs were sold to veterans and their families to memorialize wartime service. Most that I have seen date from the 1870s- 1890s. Yours appears to date from 1863-- which makes it much more desirable.

    Here is the unit history from the NPS:

  4. tnjmaxfield tnjmaxfield, 3 years ago
    Orignial date is 1861 sorry it didnt show up real well on here. But thank you so much for the info Just no one around here seems to know much
  5. scottvez scottvez, 3 years ago
    In your third picture "Published August 25, 1863".

    The information on casualties ends in AUG 1863 as well, so it was produced around that time.

    What other information are you looking for on this?

    Scott
