The document include place and date of enlistment; where, when, and by whom mustered; the last date of pay; and room for comments about the current status each man. Comments when present include details about promotions and demotions, and absences due to sickness, detached duty, leave, etc. The enlisted men in the 19th Regiment came mostly from Maryland's Eastern Shore. The Regiment was involved in military action in Virginia including the Siege of Petersburg, as well as its later capture, the pursuit of Lee, and the ending at Appomattox. Neither company appears to have been involved in any named battles or skirmishes during this two month pay period. The Regiment was sent to Texas in the summer of 1865 and mustered out in January, 1867. Very Good. Item #89903
