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 the Civil War these activities were intensified, particularly as they related to fulfillment of municipal recruitment quotas and determinations of entitlement to state aid and bounties. This series, probably prepared shortly after the war, consists of a list of soldiers receiving bounties from municipalities for military service -- Information for each soldier includes name, municipality paying bounty, and regiment with which service was performed. The series was probably abstracted from: Returns of municipal bounties, 1863-1864 ((M-Ar)456X) and serves as a companion to: Summary of municipal bounty payments, 1863-1865 ((M-Ar)446X)
