Adjutant and Inspector General Reports

1862 Report
Appendix B


Adjutant and Inspector General's Office,
Woodstock, August 11, 1862.

Men, who enlist for the purpose of filling up the old regiments, now in service, will be allowed, so far as their wished can practically be regarded, to go into such company and regiment as they shall prefer. Enlisting Officers will in all cases, if the man expresses any such preference, note upon the back of each of the triplicate enlistment contracts, under the filing, the company and regiment designated by him. It will not be certain that these wishes can be carried out in all cases; but it will be done wherever it can be, consistently with the public service.
