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."

 3.  Preliminary Inventory of the Records of the Chiefs of Arms: Record Group 177
John E. Taylor and Patricia Andrews
(1962), 2007, 8½x11, paper, 24 pp, Heritage Books, Inc
The term “Chiefs of Arms” refers to the Chief of Field Artillery, the Chief of Coast Artillery, the Chief of Cavalry, and the Chief of Infantry. The Artillery Corps contains two branches: the Coastal Artillery and the Field Artillery. This inventory describes the materials in Record Group 177, Records of the Chiefs of Arms. It includes records of the Office of the Chief of Field Artillery, the Office of the Chief of Cavalry, and the Office of the Chief of Infantry. This work was compiled primarily for internal use in the National Archives; and, as its title indicates, it is intended to be only a “preliminary” description of the records to which it relates. “Many of the series are incomplete and fragmentary because the documents were separated, before transfer to the National Archives, from other War Department materials, particularly the records of the Army Ground Forces.”
