91st PA--regimental letters and orders, 7 September 1863

Regimental letters, 7 September 1863

[source: regimental letters book]
[See the earlier letter apparently listing absent officers, on 28 August 1863, which lists 1st lt James Delavan, capt Matthew Hall, lt John S. Donnell, capt A. H. Bowman, and lt James B. Diehl. I do not know why Bowman, who was discharged on 26 Sep 1863, is the only one also mentioned in this letter.]
