Regimental descriptive book

[source: regimental descriptive book and consolidated morning reports, record group 94, NARA]
[I have proofread and edited this transcription.]

[On 18 August 1863, the adjutant asked company commanders to give him a list of all commissioned officers in their company, with all changes since the company was organized, to enable him to produce a new regimental descriptive book (circular, HQ 91st PA, 18 August 1863).]
