Adjutant and Inspector General's Office,
Woodstock, Oct. 19, 1864.

To His Excellency,
J. Gregory Smith,
Governor of the State of Vermont:


I have the honor herewith to transmit my report, as Adjutant and Inspector General, from the date of my last annual Report, October 1, 1863, to October 1, 1864.

I am, very respectfully,
Your obedient servant,
Adjutant and Inspector General.


The past year has been one of unusual activity in every department of business connected with this office. The frequency and number of calls for troops have rendered necessary constant labor in the recruiting service, while the unusual and extraordinary energy, with which the campaign against the enemy has been conducted, has involved great anxiety and labor, in connection, with the soldiers from this State in the field and in hospitals, in al the various matters pertaining to them, It is a source of pride and gratification, that the citizens of the State have responded with the utmost promptness to every requisition for recruits, and that the troops from the State, in the field, have, by their unflinching bravery and determination to succeed, won for the State a reputation second to none. When the history of the State, in connection with this war for the preservation of the National existence, shall be written, the sacrifice of blood and of treasure made during this year, in a cause so momentous, will constitute a record, to which future generations will point with pride and exultation.
