Book Description

January 1994
This is a complete list of commissioned officers of the U.S. from the organization of the Army, September 29, 1789, to the year of the list's original publication in 1903, giving the officers' full names and showing their services as cadets and all services as officers or enlisted men, either in the regular or volunteer service. The heart of the work, Part II, an alphabetical listing of the officers, runs to some 60,000 entries. Each entry contains a brief paragraph on the officer giving his state or country where born, state from which originally appointed, date of induction, rank, date of discharge, promotions, medals, battles participated in, and, in about a fifth of the entries, date of death after leaving the Army. This monumental book is actually a lot more than a listing of the officer corps, as crucial as that is. Rather, it is a handbook on the men, events, and terminology of American military life during the years of its coverage.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must Have Resource March 12 2011
Format:Paperback
For anyone interested in genealogy and military research, this two volume book is a must. My area of particular interest is the War of 1812 and this reference allows me to quickly find the military records of US officers associated with this conflict. This resource also provides information on the conflicts that the various regiments were involved in, their organizational structure and forts where they were stationed. A great resource to get you started when you only have a name or a regimental number.

5.0 out of 5 stars Its not the best - its the only one that does it! Oct. 20 1997
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Heitman's register is a must for any serious (by this I mean one who's interests extend beyond battles and weapons) student of the U.S. Army before 1900. The register has information on every regular army and all generals including promotions, assignments, awards, organization tables, lists of key officers etc.
