Biog./Hist. Note On March 13, 1884, the General Assembly passed an act directing the adjutant general to compile a roster of all those who served from Virginia in the Confederate armed forces. The project did not begin, however, until Congress' passage of an act in 1903 providing for the assembling of muster rolls for all the Confederate states and Virginia's subsequent creation of the Office of the Secretary of Virginia Military Records in 1904. The work of the Secretary of Virginia Military Records of assembling muster rolls and other documents related to Virginians in the Civil War was continued by the Department of Confederate Military Records which was formed by an act of the General Assemply on March 12, 1912. Major Robert W. Hunter served as Secretary of Virginia Military Records from 1904 until 1910. Hunter was replaced by Colonel Joseph V. Bidgood who served as Secretary of Virginia Military Records and later Secretary of the Department of Confederate Military Records. In 1918, the General Assembly passed an act abolishing the Department of Confederate Military Records and transferred the department's records to the Library of Virginia.
Note The Confederate Rosters are now part of the Virginia Dept. of Military Affairs record group (RG# 46) housed in the Archives at the Library of Virginia.
