Military Monday: S.S.Glover, Jr. Compiled Military Service Records

Samuel Stillman Glover, Jr. Compiled Military Service Record Cards

My excitement is slowly dissipating from the phone call I received from my daughter, Kirsten, when she was visiting the National Archives in Washington, D.C. and asked if she could do any research for me.  Kirsten wrote about her visit here.

Kirsten provided me with my Civil War veteran, Samuel S. Glover, Jr's compiled military service record (CSMR).  I had been thinking about ordering the record ever since I ordered Samuel's pension file.

The CSMR contained seventeen cards and a certificate of disability.  I knew from Samuel's pension file that he had been injured while carrying dispatches to General Buell.  He was shot in the knee and spent time in a military hospital. The cards in his compiled military service record document his time spent in the hospital.  I have a copy of the cards and decided to take the information from those cards and create a table of dates and places.
