Using an index of the NARA Provost Marshals' Papers, I have been able to identify and obtain/view the appropriate LDS microfilm roll concerning a relative who was one of the estimated sixty-four persons 'assessed' under the provisions of G.O. #24. So, I have some bits and pieces, and a pretty lengthy transcript of an 'interrogation to determine disloyalty', but since the legal record keeping under the suspension of the writ of habeas corpus in these matters was rather one-sided, I cannot truly write a summary such as I would like.
I would like to be able to state: names of those assessed, dates of notice of assessments, evidence cited for purported disloyalty, amounts of the original assessments, hearings conducted by the Board of Assessment, revised/final amounts of assessments, whether or not revised/final assessments were collected, and when collected was it as money or by possession and sale of the accused's personal property. Clearly, I have a lot more work to do and I will appreciate any recommendations concerning where there might be found the kinds of non-warfare-related documents that would help me understand how folks whose political beliefs were somewhere in the Copperhead to Butternut spectrum, came through these trials.
[I am not purposely cross-posting; I'm trying to find the right forum for my interests which are primarily concerned with civilian activities during the rebellion. Since, by location, I am almost exclusively focused on Missouri, my previous postings have been on that geographically-based message board, and my experience is that civilian-based topics do not generate much interest, so I am giving this one a shot.]
