Hay’s and Stafford’s Brigades (aka York’s Command), Evans’ Division, Second Corps, Army of Northern Virginia1

August 19, 1864

The Confederate Army of Northern Virginia produced inspection reports at approximately monthly intervals late in the Civil War.  Luckily, many of these reports have been preserved and are available on microfilm from the National Archives and Records Association. I have produced transcriptions of the key information from these reports. See the bottom of this page for freely downloadable transcriptions of most of these reports. This transcription is copyrighted by Brett Schulte and may not be distributed, changed, or reproduced in any manner without the written consent of the transcriber.

  2. SOPO Editor’s Note: Clearly this number is wrong.  The effectives should be slightly lower than the present for duty below. “Effectives” counts men carrying muskets and excludes commissioned officers.
