MADISON, WIS.:

WILLIAM J. PARK & CO., BOOKSELLERS, BINDERS AND STATIONERS,

1866.

PREFACE.

In this edition the report of the adjutant general for the year 1865 is reprinted, but with the omission (1) of the lists of losses of the various Wisconsin organizations mustered into the service of the United States, such lists appearing in the original report immediately following the history of the several organizations, (2) of Exhibits E and F, wThich constitute a regimental roster of the commissioned officers of the Wisconsin volunteers, and (3), an alphabetical index of that roster. These lists are excluded because they have been carefully revised and reprinted in separate form,—the losses in a memorial volume, Wisconsin Losses in the Civil War, and exhibits E and F in the Roster of Wisconsin Volunteers.

The head and marginal notes in this edition are by the editor. The ''Official Records of the Union and Confederate Armies" in the "War of the Rebellion" are in each case cited by the serial number of such records.
