Col. D.W. Flagler".It is for the pay period of April 30, 1866 to June 30, 1866.It is quite detailed and in very good condition.At bears the signatures of all of the payees, some signing with an X.One of the soldiers is William Alston.
It is also signed by the Lt. Col. at the Augusta (Georgia) Arsenal who indicates that discipline, instruction, military appearance, arms and accoutrements are all good but the uniform coats are to small and of inferior quality. Many of the soldiers have extensive remarks beside their names indicating promotions, sickness, desertions and reenlistments.Each soldier's rank is also listed along with when, where and by whom he enlisted, and when last paid.Below is a list of the soldiers on the roll: D.W.
