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. The learning and the untiring and undiminishing devotion to science of Dr. Jones have been so abundantly attested, that it is supererogatory to attempt to present the claims of one so widely known, and to whom his profession is so greatly indebted. 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:This roster has been constructed from the manuscript volumes (two in number) prepared by the Medical Directors of the Armies of Mississippi and Tennessee, and chiefly by Surgeons A. J. Foard and E. A. Flewellen. These manuscripts were placed in my possession by my esteemed friend, Dr. J. P. Logan, of Atlanta, as will be seen from the following communicaton: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  of the races preceding us on this continent, but the medical fame of Dr. Jones has quite eclipsed the light of other endowments of his. The Presbyterian says: ‘The learned scientist who, in addition to his wide investigation in the departments of medicine and kindred sciences, is a devoted archaeologist, and has accumulated a valuable museum of Indian relics, has recently read a lecture on Stone Weapons before the students of Tulane University.’ It is to be regretted that the limits of the present volume of the Papers preclude the publication of but a portion of the results of the invaluable labors of Dr. Jones, and it is to be hoped that the means may yet be attained by which the whole may be preserved in print.—Editor.
I visited Professor J. P. Logan at his home in Atlanta in 1891, shortly before his death. He stated that after the Civil War (1861-1865), during his residence in Baltimore, Maryland, Dr. A. J. Foard, formerly Medical Director of the Army of Tennessee, who was in feeble health, before leaving for Charleston, S. C., left four manuscript books relating to the Medical Officers and Official Orders of the Medical Directors Office of the Army of Tennessee, in his hands for preservation. Dr. Logan as Post Surgeon of Atlanta in 1863-1864; of Augusta, Georgia, in 1864-1865, placed these manuscript volumes in my possession in order to aid in my labors in behalf of the medical corps of the Confederate army. In consolidating the two manscript volumes, containing the names, rank and services of the medical officers, I have been greatly aided by my daughters Miss C. S. Jones and Miss Mary C. Jones, who were untiring in their efforts to secure accuracy in the execution of this tedious work. Adams, J. M., Assistant Surgeon, com'd July 19, 1861.
