Adjutant General's Office, Wheeling, January 1st, 1865. J His Excellency,

Arthur I. Boreman,

Governor of West Virginia,

Sir: Pursuant to the laws of this State, I have the honor to transmit herewith my annual report for the year ending December 31st, 1864.

As complete records of the organizations mustered into the United States service from this State have never been furnished this office by those whose duty it was, which may be attributed to many reasons, some of which were mentioned in my former report, s I have endeavored to supply these deficiencies by returns from the organizations in the field, which, although they may not be con- sidered as entirely satisfactory, are the best that I have been able to obtain, and by comparing them with the records I already have, I find them generally to be correct. There may be some inaccura- cies resulting from this fact, that in many instances the records of companies have been lost, but these will not materially affect the history of any soldier in the service.

This report is intended to give as nearly a correct record of West Virginia organizations in the service of the United States, and other matters connected with the military history of the State, as it has been possible for me to make under the many embarrassing circumstances with which it has been attended, and is presented herewith in the appendix in the following order, viz :

Appendix "A" is a Roster of the field, staff and company officers of the several organizations in the United States service from this State, showing the changes which have taken place since my last report.

Appendix "B," embraces a record of every Regiment, Battery, and Independent Company, with the name of every officer and soldier who has ever been in the service of the United States in them, since the commencement of the war, (except the 1st Regi- ment three months volunteers, and four or five companies of differ- ent regiments,) so far as it has been possible for me to obtain the same from any source whatever. This portion of my report has been compiled from the muster-out rolls of the various organiza- tions whose terms of service have expired, and from returns re-


ceived from organizations yet in the field. As the regulations of the war department do not require mustering officers to furnish Adjutant Generals of States with copies of the muster-out rolls of troops, as in the case of muster-in, I am indebted to Lieut. Henry C. Peck, U. S. mustering and disbursing officer at this post, and to his gentlemanly clerks for their kindness in allowing me the use of the retain rolls of that office, and for the facilities afforded me in procuring the necessary data therefrom. The records of the differ- ent organizations compiled from these muster-out rolls, may be regarded as entirely correct, showing who were mustered out of service, and who are yet remaining ; also, the date and place of all deaths, discharges, desertions, &c. The record of those yet remain- ing in service, from which no men have been mustered out, is com- piled from the returns received from such organizations ; in which case I prepared blanks in the form desired, and forwarded to each regimental and company commander, with the necessary instruc- tions for making out the same, affording them all the facilities I could to assist them. To the officers making these returns, I am much indebted, for the promptness with which they complied with my request ; to the commanding officers of regiments, particularly, for the interest they have manifested in having these returns as correct as possible. I have added to many of the organizations (and shall add to all, if I can procure them in time,) historical mem- oranda of the organization and operations of such, and a list of the principal engagements in which they have participated. It is not pretended, at all, that these memoranda will give more than a faint idea of what such organizations have performed, and are not as complete as desired, but our troops have been so constantly in motion since the opening of the campaign in this department early in the spring, that it has been only within the last month or two, that I have been able to obtain much of the material from which this report is compiled, thus giving me but little time to work upon it : indeed, the time has been so short since the officers in the field have had an opportunity to furnish me the returns I desired, that much which would have been interesting and important, has been left out for want of time to prepare it. Injustice may thus be done to our brave and gallant troops, but to attempt (because it would only be an attempt) to do them justice in writing a history of each organization of the many engagements in which they have participated, in which they have gained so much honor for themselves, and reflected so much credit upon their noble State : to notice the many interesting incidents, the privations and suffer- ings, and the many individual acts of gallantry and heroism, would require volumes, more than could be allotted to this report.


I will endeavor to procure the returns from those companies from which none have yet been received, and also the information from which the regimental histories of the different regiments which have not reported, can be prepared in time to add them to this report before it is published, (if published at all.)

Appendix "C" is a Roster of the several Independent companies of Scouts in the State, giving the counties for which organized, and date of organization. These companies are sworn into the service of the State for the term of one year, are paid and provided with arms, equipments, &c, by the State; and number from twenty-five to fifty, and in two or three of the counties as many as seventy-five men each, thus, making over one thousand men in the State service in the border counties, without which there could have been no enforcement of the civil laws of the State, nor collection of revenues for the United States, and the loyal people could not have remain- ed at home. Although these companies are maintained at consider- able expense to the State, yet I do not think their services could be very well dispensed with ; nor do I think the force should be diminished. During the past year they have participated in many engagements with the guerrillas, and have succeeded very well in the protection of those counties for which they are organized, and are quite able to do so, except against raids by large bodies of the enemy. This service is very arduous and dangerous, and such only as can be successfully accomplished by men who have lived in the country, who are thoroughly acquainted with it and the inhabi- tants. They are instructed to co-operate, as far as practicable, with the United States forces, and have proven very efficient as scouts and guides for our armies, and generally much more effective for the purpose for which they are intended, than our soldiers in the United States service would be. During the past year we have received many favorable notices of the operations of these com- panies from the military commanders in different portions of the State.

Appendix "D" shows a report of the enrollment of this State by couuties, which has been kindly furnished me from the office of the Acting Assistant Provost Marshal General of the State.

Appendix "E" exhibits the account of the State with the United States respecting the number of men required and furnished under the different calls of the President from the commencement of the war to the present time. It will be seeu that during the past year under the different calls of the President for troops, amounting to one million of men, this State has been required to furnish her quota, and up to the date of the last call, Dec. 19th, was only defi-


cient eight hundred and seventy-five men. This deficiency arises from the fact that quotas were assigned to counties yet under con- trol of the rebels, to such an extent, at least, that the attendance of drafted men could not be compelled, for which reason the draft in those counties was suspended, and the additional reason perhaps, that to attempt an enforcement of a draft in those coun- ties, would add more recruits to the rebel armies than to ours. Living, as these men are, upon the border, an attempt to enforce a draft would give them a pretext for forming themselves into guer- rilla bands, and render those counties much worse than they now are. There have been but thirty-six (36) men drafted and held to service in this State, since the commencement of the war. The patriotism of the people of West Virginia is not surpassed by any in the Union, and none, perhaps, can show a better record in this respect. Every effort has been made to fill each call for troops by voluntary enlistments; and for this purpose large bounties have been paid by nearly every county in the State. By comparing this statement with tffb enrollment of the State, it is only a matter of surprise, considering the many disadvantages under which it has labored, that so many men have been furnished. At the commence- ment of the war, whole regiments were organized and mustered into the United States service, from portions of the State at the same time occupied by rebel troops, and recruiting for both armies going on in the same county ; our border counties continually overrun by guerrillas, murders and thefts being daily occurrences, and, indeed, in some of our more interior counties, this is true, insomuch that it would seem, that it would require every loyal man to remain at his home for the protection of his family. Many more of our soldiers in the field would have re-enlisted during the past year, had it not been for the wail that come to them from their families, of the indignities which they were receiving from these bands of guerrillas, horse thieves and murderers

Under the call of the President for 300,000 men, dated December 19th, 1864, the quota of the State is 3,119 ; in this, however, are included the counties in which the draft had been suspended under former calls, and the deficiencies in those counties are added to the quota under the present call : at the date of the call of July 18th, 1864, for 500,000, one, two or three years men, the State had an excess of 3,127 three years men, but which under that call were counted as only man for man, the years of service, not having been taken into consideration. Under the present call the years of service are calculated ; the manner in which it is done will be better understood by the following letter from the Provost Marshal Gen-


eral of the United States to Captain Edward P. Hudson, Acting Assistant Provost Marshal General of this State, announcing the quota of the State, as follows :

"War Department, Provost Marshal General's Office,

Washington, D. C, Dec. 23, 1864. Capt, W. P. Hudson,

Act Ass't Pro. Mar. Gen I,

Wheeling, W. Va. The quota of the State of West Virginia, under the call of the President for three hundred thousand men, dated December 19th, 1864, is (3,119) three thousand one hundred and nineteen.

This is the number required under the call after taking into account the credits to which the State is entitled, by estimating the number of years of service furnished by one, two and three years men.

The quota of the 1st District is 4

'■' " " 2d District is 2862

" " " 3d District is 253=3,119

The whole number of years of service furnished by each District, and which is to be considered in apportioning the quotas of the sub-districts, is :

1st District, 6639, being an excess of 3893 years of service over the number of men furnished.

2d District, being an excess of years of service over the

number of men furnished.

3d District, 2603, being an excess of 1389 years of service over the number of men furnished.

In order to equalize this credit, it will be added to the quota of the District in gross, and distributed among the sub-districts, accord- ing to the number enrolled in each. This will give the quota of the sub-districts, increased by the excess in proportion to the number enrolled; but as the number of one, two and three year's men respectively, have been furnished without regard to the number enrolled, the Provost Marshal will subtract from this gross quota, the actual amount of excess of years of service which the sub-dis- trict has furnished.

The enclosed iormula is furnished as a rule for assigning quotas to sub-districts.

Suppose the quota, under the present call, in a given district containing (8) sub-districts, is 1 000 men and that the quota in that district under the call of July 18, 1864, was 1,600, which was filled as follows :

It will be seen that the excess of years of service over the num- ber of men furnished in the 1st sub-district is 100; in the 2d 100, &c. &c Total in district, 1200.

The total in the district under the present call is 1000, to this add the excess 1200, making 2200; then, as the number enrolled in the sub-district to its quota ; which quota will be reduced by sub- tracting from it, its share of the excess.

George E. Scott, Capl. 1st V. R. C"


Thus it will be seen that the real number to be furnished by the State under the present call will be small, as the principal part of the quota is chargeable to those counties in which a dralt cannot be enforced.

I have prepared no statement of the organization of the militia of this State, from the fact that a full statement cannot, at present, be furnished. Under the new State organization it is necessary to re-number and re-organize the different Regiments, this has only been done in the First Division. In many of the other counties it will be necessary, where there are two or three Regiments in a county to consolidate them, and not being able to tell, under exist- ing state of things in those counties, what the real militia force is, it has been deemed expedient to defer it for a time. If possible, this should be done daring the coming year. The militia laws of this State should be compiled and published in pamphlet form, together with forms for reports, certificates, and orders of Regimental courts making allowances, &c, for the use of the militia.

On two or three occasions during the past year it has been neces- sary to call out the 2d and 3d Brigades of militia, commanded by Gen'ls Core and Bunker, to repel expected raids by the enemy, and the promptness with which these Brigades responded to the orders, and the cheerfulness with which they did duty as soldiers is indeed highly commendable.

By direction of Your Excellency, the flags authorized by the Legislature to be procured and presented to different West Virginia Regiments, have been purchased at an aggregate cost of $887.25, The flags have all been presented, and in return several of the Regiments have returned to the State their old battle flags, which exhibit the part such Regiments have taken in the many hotly con- tested battles in which they have been engaged, and constitute an interesting part of the record of their gallantry and devotion to their country's cause. Some provision should be made for the care- ful preservation of these, as around them cluster many fond remembrances, to the soldier, of the gallant dead who have fallen under ind around them, of those who have sacrificed their lives for their protection.

The arduous labors performed during the past year by Col's Jacob Hornbrook and William Alexander, Aids to Your Excellency, should not be passed unnoticed. The services which they have rendered to the soldier and his family cannot be estimated. The promptness, willingness and fidelity with which these officers attend to the wants of our soldiers, visiting them in Hospitals, and in the field, doing every thing possible for their accommodation and com-


fort is deserving the highest praise. During the past year Col. Hornbrook has made eleven visits to the army, and has carried home for the soldiers $385,000 and with the amount Col. Alexander has thus carried, about $600,000 has been delivered during the year to soldiers families, without its costing the soldiers one cent, and costing the State only the necessary expenses of these officers in traveling. They have also frequently visited our Hospitals and inquired into the wants and condition of our soldiers. Within the last two or three months Col. Alexander has visited nearly all the Hospitals in the United States in which our soldiers were, took a memorandum of their condition, and where they were out of the Department, through the influence of Your Excellency, procured from the Sugeon General, U. S. A., transfers to Hospitals in this Department, where they can be visited by their friends and rela- tives. This has been very encouraging to the sick and wounded soldiers, and no doubt aided much in their speedy recovery. The self-sacrificing devotion of these officers for the interests of the sol- dier can never be repaid.

The people of this State have done much through their agents in this city and elsewhere, in alleviating the wants of our sick and wounded soldiers, in the different Hospitals in this Department and in the field ; their liberality in this respect is indeed highly com- mendable. The "Ladies Soldier's Aid Society," too, which has met weekly in the Capitol Buildings during the past year deserve great credit for their untiring efforts in providing for the wants of the soldiers.

I would respectfully beg leave to call the attention of Your Excellency to the salary of the clerk in this office, as being entirely insufficient under the present advanced prices of boarding, &c, the present allowance being only six hundred dollars per annum, for which sum it will be impossible to employ a competent clerk.

The contingent expenses of my office since January 1st, 1864, amount to six hundred and fifteen dollars, the amount appropria- ted by the Legislature was three hundred dollars.

Another year of the war has passed, and to West Virginia troops the most severe since the commencement. The operations of the army in the Department of West Virginia, and in the Shenandoah Valley, since the opening of the campaign early in the spring, have been of continuous marching and hard fighting. All our troops have been sei ving in that department and in the Valley of Virginia during the year, (except the 7th Infantry, which has been in the army of the Potomac, engaged in all the hard fought battles there, and Battery "C") Many of the most severely contested battles, and


most glorious victories since the commencement of the war have been fought and won, and in each of them the conspicuous gal- lantry and bravery of West Virginia troops, has been a subject of special notice, and the part they have taken is fully attested by their depleted ranks.

At the battles of Piedmont, New Market, Cloyd Mountain, Lynchburg, Winchester, Opequan, Cedar Creek, &c, and in the in- numerable skirmishes in which they have been engaged, the best blood of the state has been shed. Our offering upon the altar of our country has been as great, perhaps, as that of any State in the Union, in proportion to its numbers. Upon these battle fields have fallen the brave and gallant Colonels Thoburn and Frost, and Lieutenant Colonels Morris and Hall, whose names will ever live as the gallant friends of human liberty.

Two of our Colonels, Duval, of the 9th Infantry, and Powell, of the 2nd Cavalry, have been appointed Brig. Generals of Vols.; and another, Col. T. M. Harris, of the 10th Infantry, breveted Brig. Genl.; these for conspicuous gallantry and abilities as officers. Six others are commanding Brigades, whilst there are hundreds and thousands in the ranks who deserve the highest praise, who have won for themselves a reputation of which they may well be proud, and a reputation for the State which will make her and her soldiery prominent in the history of our national struggle, when it shall have been fully written by the impartial historian. Not so much of their acts have been portrayed to the public in glowing accounts by newspaper correspondents, and not so much is known of the part they have taken, as of troops from other States, because the Press of this State have had no correspondents with our armies.

In conclusion, I hope it may not again be necessary to speak of the gallantry of our troops in hard fought battles during this war, but, that by the blessing of God, our government may be restored by the surrender of its enemies, and that it may stand a monument, not of oppression and terror, but of human liberty, wisdom and peace, upon which other nations may gaze with admiration forever. I have the honor to be,

Very Respectfully, Your Obedient Servant,
