Adjutant General Records Series Finding Aids

Records Series Finding Aids


Agency: Adjutant General
Division: Civil War
RG no. 745
Series: 2445
Series Title: Furlough papers, 1862-1865

Description: The Adjutant General's office maintained and later collected records documenting Ohio's efforts and the Adjutant General's office's responsibilities for raising, assigning, supplying, and keeping track of Ohio troops during the Civil War. A soldier received a furlough to allow him to recover from wounds or illness, and to attend to family emergencies in Ohio. Entries were made on printed or handwritten forms. Information contained in these forms includes: date furlough form signed; soldier's name, age, physical description, occupation, place of birth, where and when enlisted, term of service, rank, company, and regiment; ailment, wound, or other reason for furlough; date furlough granted; length of furlough; camp or hospital furloughed from; location of soldier's company or regiment; and regimental commanding officer's or appropriate surgeon's signature.

1 cu ft. The Adjutant General's office maintained a large quantity of records that it generated or received pertaining to Ohio's efforts during the Civil War. After the end of the war, the Adjutant General also collected records from regiments and individual soldiers further documenting Ohio's efforts as well as the Adjutant General's office's efforts during the war. The Adjutant General stored these records beneath the Statehouse or at the Columbus Armory. Later, the Adjutant General transferred its collection of Civil War records to the State Archives. The original order and arrangement for many of the Civil War era records that were loose or unbound, of which series 2445 is one, was lost. The furlough papers are arranged first by the three categories of Ohio regiments: infantry, artillery, and cavalry. Within each of these categories the furlough papers are arranged by regiment number.
