New York (State). Adjutant General's Office. Descriptive book of the 193rd New York Volunteer Infantry Regiment, 1865.
Description:     .5 cu. ft. (1 volume)
Abstract:          This series provides physical descriptions and enlistment information on the majority of men who served in the 193rd New York Volunteer Infantry Regiment during the closing months of the Civil War. The volume contains no information as to its office of origin or compiler. The following information is provided for each enlisted man: age; height; complexion; eye and hair color; place of birth; occupation; date and place of enlistment; by whom enlisted; term of enlistment; and remarks. The remarks usually refer to desertions, promotions, transferrals, or discharges. For some reason, the first two or three pages of each company's roster have been torn out of the book. These pages contained descriptions of approximately twelve members of the company. Descriptions of the regiment's officers appears at the beginning of the volume. These descriptions provide only name, rank, date of appointment, date mustered, and remarks. Several pages pertaining to the officers have also been torn out of the volume. Finally, the volume contains a lengthy discourse on the qualifications and characteristics that generals should possess.
