These two large volumes from 1875 titled WAR DEPARTMENT MEDICAL STATISTICS OF THE PROVOST MARSHAL GENERAL BUREAU VOLUME 1 AND 2 provides detailed information of men and soldiers drafted during the USA Civil War also called The War of the Rebellion.

These two War Department Medical Statistics of the Provost General  Volumes are in original green cloth and are in Very Good Plus condition with cover and spine showing no significant damage although I note some foxing on interior pages.

The provost marshal general (pronounced “provo”) is a United States Army staff position that handles investigations and incarcerations of U.S. Army personnel. It is the highest-ranking provost marshal position in the U.S. Army, reporting to the Chief of Staff of the United States Army. The position brings all aspects of law enforcement in the U.S. Army in a single office.

The role has been off and on since 1776 (usually in periods of war time). After shutting down in 1974 at the end of the Vietnam War, it was resurrected on January 30, 2003 following the September 11 attacks.

It is responsible for:

  • United States Army Military Police Corps (since 2003)
  • United States Army Criminal Investigation Command (CID) (since 2003)
  • United States Army Corrections Command (ACC) (since 2007)
