NOTE: The information contained herein

not in all cases agree with ages, dates places etc contained in other records.
The mass discharge of personnel on 22May1865 was the result of a petition by those personnel stating that their recruiting officers had misrepresented their period of enlistment as being one year instead of the three year enlistment and that their period of enlistment had expired. They were ordered discharged and the US Congress passed authorization to pay the bounty etc on the one year enlistment the same as if it were a three enlistment. This misrepresentation probably also contributed to the high rate of desertions. Many deserters returned during the period and the desertion charges were changed to absent without leave with only a loss of pay during the time they were gone. The desertion and return remarks are not included herein.
