Veteran Reserve Corps

Introduction

The Invalid Corps (I.C.) was organized under authority of War Department General Order No. 105, dated 28 April 1863. The title "Veteran Reserve Corps" was substituted for that of "Invalid Corps" by General Order No. 111, dated March 18, 1864, to boost the morale as the same initials "I.C." were stamped on condemned property meaning, "Inspected-Condemned". It was abolished in 1866. (Wikipedia)

The 1892 Revised Roster lists 93 Vermonters who served in the VRC (6 officers and 87 enlisted). But our research shows 974 soldiers in Vermont units later served in this organization.
