Patricia Andrews and Ruth Johnson
(1967), 2007, CD, Adobe Acrobat, v6, Graphic Images, PC and Mac, 126 pp, Heritage Books, Inc
"The establishment of the Provost Marshal General's Bureau in 1863 centralized the duties of enrolling, drafting, and recruiting men for service, which had previously been carried out by the separate States. The main operations of these functions remained in the States, but they were supervised and regulated by the Provost Marshal General. Under the provisions of the enrollment act of March 3, 1863, enrollment districts were created based on the number of congressional districts, and a provost marshal was assigned to each district…The provost marshals had charge of reporting and arresting deserters, detecting spies, and enrolling, drafting, recruiting, and dispatching drafted men and substitutes to rendezvous or depots…The inventory is in eight parts. Part I describes records of the central office in Washington, D.C. Parts II through VIII describe those of State, Territory, and district offices. The records described in this part of the inventory (Part IV) are those of the States of New Jersey and Pennsylvania, 1861-68. Included are some consolidated records for the two States."
