Organization of the army of Northern Virginia, (General R. E. Lee commanding.) August 28 to September 1, 1862.1

[We are indebted to the courtesy of Colonel R. N. Scott, of the “War records” office, Washington, for a number of Rosters of the organization of Confederate troops. We shall publish them all, from time to time, not only as a matter of interest, but in order that corrections may be made if any errors are found. We are sure that Colonel Scott would esteem it a favor, if any one discovering errors would call attention to them.]
