In the preparation of the following list, great pains has [sic] been taken to make ti as complete and correst as was possible to do. Nearly all the names have been printed in a newspaper of good circulation, and the benefit of corrections thus obtained; yet, without doubt, many names are omitted — others are spelled wrong, some names are misplaced, itc., but for all this, it is the only list of the men who went from this county, and is as near correct as can well be, until revised, which every year makes more difficult to do. With all its errors, be they few or many, it is, as a whole, better than no list.

The names of deserters, when duly authenticated, have been lft out. Soldiers who were discharged for disability are not designated as having been so discharged, for the reason that such items of personal history are known only to the records of the Government.

The following "key" has been arranged to save space, and at the same time to express facts, its use has been extended in some instances, by a combination of the same letters, thus w-p-d is to be read wounded, prisoner, died; d-w, died of wounds, etc.

Personal extolment has been avoided except when merit demanded special mention.
