1 volume
Call no.: PS1/424X

Scope and Content: The adjutant general of the Commonwealth, as executive administrator of the state’s Military Establishment, has been responsible for maintaining and reporting data concerning militia strength; these activities were intensified during the Civil War.  This series provides an abstract account of military payrolls during and after the war.
Arrangement: Arranged by payroll number (i.e., chronologically).
Notes: The origin of this series is unclear.  It may have been a summary of bounty payrolls prepared by the paymaster general, but the information given is insufficient to draw that conclusion.  No connection can be made between this record and: Massachusetts. Paymaster General. Bounty payroll accounts, 1865-1866 ((M-Ar)439X).  Having come to the Archives with other records from the Adjutant General’s Office, this item has been ascribed to that agency
