MUSTER ROLLS OF THE EUGENE
RAWSON POST OF THE GRAND ARMY OF THE REPUBLIC
Page from the Muster Roll of the Eugene Rawson Post of the G. A.
Among the records of the Eugene Rawson Post of the Grand Army of the
Republic, Fremont, Ohio, (Local History
Collection 251) are two "muster rolls" that provide information about the
organization's 400-plus members. Although the information on each Civil War
veteran varies, the records may include name, age, birthplace, residence,
occupation, and Civil War service (regiment, company, rank, date of enlistment,
final discharge, cause of discharge, and wounds). The date of admission into the
GAR, transfer of membership (if applicable), and death date are also given.
The online description of the Eugene Rawson Post GAR records includes an alphabetical
index of veterans' names appearing in the muster rolls. In addition to the
volume and page number, the index gives the birthplace of each veteran and the
company and regiment in which he served.
