Scope and Content Note

This is a fragmentary series of documents relating to military and education matters within the state from the late eighteenth through the nineteenth century. They apparently were kept by the Legislature to document the state's actions in these two fundamental areas of government.

The military documents pertain to personnel issues such as resignations, vacancies, and appointments. Included are two documents entitled "Names and Residences of Electors of the State of New York Absent in the Military Service of the United States," which list names from the 201st Regiment (D Company, stationed at Camp Meade) and the 69th Regiment (L Company, stationed at Camp Joe Wheeler) from 1898. Also found are a number of letters (ca. 1835-1850), apparently from merchants regarding supply orders. The resignations are predominantly from Tioga County.

Also found in this series are school schedules from Montgomery County (1795-1796), a partial list of election tallies from the city of Albany, a partial document from the Adjutant General's office, and typed copies of various legislative bills. All of these items were severely damaged in the Capitol fire of 1911. Many are faded as well as being burned and incomplete.
