Official Army Registers (1813-1969)

The Registers are an alphabetical list of officers in the United States Army.  The listings include active and retired officers.  For active officers, their place (state or country) and date of birth are listed, as is their place of enlistment and achievements in higher education.  Finally, their record of promotions while in the service are given.  Retired officers do not have as detailed records.  In latter years, there are supplementary volumes for the Army of the United States (volume 2) and Officers Honorary Retired Lists (volume 3)
