Administrative History

Laws of 1887 authorized the Adjutant General to "procure copies of all military records relating to New York volunteers in the war of the rebellion, not on file in his office, from the proper departments of the general government" (Chapter 51).

In addition, the Adjutant General was "to establish as part of his office a bureau of records of the war of the rebellion, in which all records in his office relating to said war, and the records and relics of the bureau of military statistics shall be united and kept" (Chapter 247).

In his annual report to the Adjutant General the chief of the Bureau of Records of the War of the Rebellion stated that "arrangements have been entered into to obtain from the United States Navy Department the records of the men who served in the...Marine Corps" during the Civil War. Nine years later the bureau's chief reported that the service records of men who served in the previous hit Marine Corps had been bound "and the old records...carefully filed and packed away for preservation."
