This collection of Confederate naval and marine records divides itself into three parts. Part one is concerned with Union and Confederate hospital records as well as Union and parole prison records of naval and marine personnel. The second part reproduces reference cards and papers relating to naval personnel and the third part reproduces those of marine personnel. Reference cards indicate rank of sailor or marine, payroll, and include references to vessel papers. Entries were obtained from hospital registers, prescription books, and prison and payroll records. The records are arranged alphabetically by the surname of the sailor or marine.
