Unfiled Papers and Slips Belonging in Confederate Compiled Service Records


The lowest ranking members of Union and Confederate Medical Departments during the Civil War were usually hospital stewards, noncommissioned officers who received the pay and allowance of a sergeant major. Each regiment was authorized to have one hospital steward, who was often chosen by the regimental surgeon from the enlisted men in the unit.


Note, my understanding is that many of these men were Pre-Med students and Pharmacists in pre war civilian life
