Debbie re-housed and inventoried reports
A set of Adjutant General/National Guard ordnance and supplies reports (dated 1866-1915) preserved in the State Archives were re-processed by State Archives volunteer Debbie. Many of the records were tri-folded, so they were unfolded and re-housed, with a new inventory accomplished. The records include reports, returns, inventories, and correspondence documenting ordnance, clothing, equipment, quartermaster supplies, and other property supplied by the state to the various Minnesota militia and guard units during period between the end of the Civil War and the United States’ entry into World War I.
