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.  During and after the Civil War these activities were intensified, particularly as they related to fulfillment of municipal recruitment quotas and determinations of entitlement to state aid, bounties, and other benefits.  Resolves 1903, c 100 authorized the adjutant general to advertise for the names and addresses of all military personnel in the war who had not received the appropriate bounties, and to place the names before the next session of the legislature.  This series comprises the correspondence resulting from that authorization.
Arrangement: Arranged alphabetically by correspondent
