Oldest Book in Lundberg Collection

This Army Register from 1815 is the oldest material in our collection. It is on the shelf with other army rregisters in the Lundberg Collection in the library's Genealogy & Local History Room..
This 14 page pamphlet listing names, rank, date of appointment, brevet and former commissions, and remarks for general staff, corps of engineers regiment of light artillery, corps of artillery, and first through eighth regiments infantry.

A photocopy was made by Mrs. Lundberg years ago. The original booklet is in an archival sleeve to keep it safe. Mrs. Lundberg attached a note that says, "Please do not remove these originals - use duplicates found xeroxed, same folder."
