Partial microfilm reel ; 35 mm.
Arranged by vessel and crew.
The adjutant general of the Commonwealth, as executive administrator of the state's Military Establishment, came to be responsible for preserving and administering information about all aspects of the state's military service. Created pursuant to Resolves 1886, c 59, this series establishes those entitled to prize money in Admiral Farragut's fleet for service during the Civil War -- L.K. Harman of Portland, Me. was commissioned to prepare the information. Arranged by vessel, it includes names of officers, crew members, and marines entitled to prizes, but not the prizes (ships) themselves. At the back, a printed list of additional prizes and captors is included, as is a crew list for the McLane, a vessel that captured two prizes during the Mexican War in 1846.
