Roster of chaplains, army of Northern Virginia.The following Roster is not as complete as I had hoped to make it, as some of my material has been lost, and I have been disappointed in not finding a Roster in the ‘War Records Office’ in Washington. But even an incomplete Roster will be of wide interest. I shall give the names of all chaplains who were at any time connected with the regiments, so far as I shall be able to ascertain them from lists before me, Minutes of the Chaplains' Association, and other data. I should be grateful for any corrections or additions. It ought to be added that the basis of this Roster is one that I made in February, 1865, so that while the regiments all appear, the corps, divisions, and brigades are different from their organization at an earlier period.
