TOWN OF WORTH CIVIL WAR SERVICEMEN 6


For explanation of table headings, click here

Fourth column should read: Letter of Company. Eighth column designates color. W = White, C = Colored. This does not refer to the soldier, rather to the company. A disproportionate number of Jefferson County soldiers were officers. Many of these officers commanded colored troops, the prevailing wisdom being that colored troops would obey white officers better than they would colored officers. The tenth column refers to bounty paid by the county if disbursed by the supervisor.The twelfth column concerns the married condition: S = Single, M = Married.

Last column heading should read: PROMOTIONS, RESIGNATIONS, DISCHARGES, DEATHS, &C, WITH DATES, CAUSES, &C. If deceased, state whether by Disease, Accident, or on the Field of Battle; give Place of Burial. If not deceased and out of Service give present Post Office Address.
