Roster of the Medical officers of the Army of Tennessee. During the Civil War between the Northern and Southern States, 1861-1865. consolidated from the original Medical-Director's Records.

By Joseph Jones, M. D., Ll.D.
Surgeon-General of the United Confederate Veterans.

The following valuable contribution forms a portion of a comprehensive ‘Roster of the Medical Officers of the Provisional Army and Regular Forces of the Confederate States of America, 1861-65, prepared from authentic and official sources,’ by Dr. Jones, and which he has generously lodged in the archives of the Southern Historical Society.

Scarcely another than he might have been so successful in securing materials. His inspiring enthusiasm is manifest throughout the results of his devoted and patriotic undertaking.

The dedication to the work is one peculiarly acceptable to the many upon whose grateful regard the excellences and beneficences of an exalted manhood are indelibly impressed.

The inscription is:

To the memory of my brother,

Charles Colcock Jones, Jr., of Augusta, Ga.,

This Roster is affectionately dedicated.

A recent notice in the Southwestern Presbyterian, New Orleans, exhibits an additional bond between these noble brothers.

The so lamented Col. Jones was known to the scientific world as a learned archaeologist, who delighted in the accumulated evidences of the existence
