Series II: Companies, 1806-1949

Scope and Contents note

This series contains material directly related to the companies of the 7th Regiment. Material includes rosters and roll books, orders, resolutions, by-laws, enlistment records, correspondence, memos, reports, financial records, circulars, record books, minutes, notices, and a few photographs. The bulk of the material is for companies B and F.

Major portions of this series include approximately two boxes of enlistment records, especially for Co. B, (1939-1949), which contain basic biographic information, and sometimes health information, for 7th members and potential members. Co. F. material includes the company's World War I files: orders, memos, bulletins, and schedules that discuss appointments, inspection instructions, health matters, marching and behavioral discipline, food, postal regulations, enforcement of attire regulations, and various procedures.

Note: the 7th Regiment initially designated companies by number, not letter. This practice continued even after the letter system was instituted; therefore, for example, Co. B and 2nd Company are the same. There is no Company J.

For other material relating to 7th Regiment companies, see rosters [c1942-1947] in the Veterans of the 7th Regiment files, Series I (Subseries 10). See also Series IX for ephemera (bulk Co. B), and Series XIV: Visual Materials for oversized items and photo albums relating to companies.
