If anyone out there has a copy or knows where to find a copy of the 1862 and 1863 Army Registers, I’d dearly love to hear from them. Or ideas on where to look, for that matter. I have 1861, 1864 and 1865, but haven’t been able to locate the other two.
The regular cavalry officer database project rolls along, albeit slowly. Using the above listed registers, I’ve accumulated 300 names. These, of course, will have to be fleshed out, but I’m still missing a few. Possibly a West Pointer or two, but more likely soldiers promoted from the ranks and killed before the 1864 register, like Lieutenant Balder of the 6th Cavalry, for example. More on the database once it’s more then a list of names. As I said before, I’ll start with the 6th and go from there.
