Consolidated morning report, 91st PA, 7 February 1863

Consolidated morning report, 7 February 1863

[no previous report available | next report (8 Feb) | search & display multiple days]

[I have proofread and edited this transcription]
[I have changed the format to improve legibility.]
[Numbers in square brackets and with grey shading are illegible in the manuscript; I have inferred them from totals.]
[The remarks include explanations of some continuing absences, for example, Colonel Gregory's. Perhaps consolidated morning reports had not been filed before, or not for some time.]

CONSOLIDATED MORNING REPORT of The Ninety First Regiment of Inft. Pennsylvania Volunteers commanded by Colonel Colonel [sic] Edgar M. Gregory

NOTE.--Regimental and Battalion Staff Officers, when belonging to companies, will be reported in such companies as "on detached service," and be accounted for in "Field and Staff." They will, however, be dropped from aggregate of "Present and Absent" in Field and Staff, and be accounted for in the aggregate of their respective companies.


[Company G has a crossed-out '1' under 'First lieutenants' present for duty. The totals suggest co.G had no first lieutenants.]

[Company E has four commissioned officers present for duty, not 3, and the regiment has 19, not 18. Since the report from 8 February has only 1 second lieutenant present for duty in company E, with the same number of officers present and absent, I suspect company E should have only 1 second lieutenant, and that the totals are correct.]

[The total number of absent enlisted men should be 210, which is consistent with the aggregates.]

[The company D and H totals work only if recruits are counted elsewhere (co.D) and non-commissioned officers on extra duty are counted elsewhere (perhaps that's why they're not counted in the total column).]
