CONSOLIDATED MORNING REPORT of The Ninety First Regiment of Penna Vol. Infantry commanded by Colonel 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.

[co.H is one greater than in the previous report, but according to the "Alterations" below, it lost one commissioned officer! Also, co.G is supposed to have lost one commissioned officer. Since I have not found any changes in commissioned officers, I am assuming the reported changes are a mistake. in fact, co.G=33, which makes the total=429]
