These records are arranged numerically. Not all numbers between 1 and 1709 were assigned; therefore the absence of a given number does not necessarily mean the absence of a military roll.
Some Civil War military rolls have been determined too fragile for retrieval; their numbers do not appear in the inventory for that series.
