The Adjutant General's Report, 1861-1865, lists the names of all troops who served in the Kansas volunteer regiments during the Civil War. This index does NOT include all Kansans who served in the Civil War. In particular, the index does not include the Kansas State Militia.<br>The original Adjutant General's report also includes each soldier's rank, the place and date of enlistment, his discharge date, and notes about promotions, prisoner of war status, and other events. If a soldier died on active duty, the place, date, and cause of death are listed. The original report is available on interlibrary loan from KSHS [microfilm reel LM 977], and is being transcribed on the web by KSGenWeb.<br>
