Series I: Civil War Regimental Records, 1860-1868, 1897. .58 Linear feet

Scope and Contents

This series relates to the 9th Regiment's service in the Civil War, when it was designated the 83rd Regiment of New York State Volunteers. The series contains a small number of company records, specifically for Companies A, C, I, and L. Record books represented in the series are descriptive, clothing, roll, morning reports, and regimental orders. Morning reports provide the best insight into the activities of the companies as they include brief descriptions of every day's events. (This series centers on records that were created in the field using the official report forms made available to the regiments. See also Series IV, V, and VI for additional documents and photographs that relate to the Civil War era.)
