 393.7 RECORDS OF POSTS
1820-1940


Note: The list below does not include posts whose records begin in 1890 or later years, because the bulk of such records relates to general administrative activities. For further information, consult the National Archives.

Note: In the list below, a single asterisk (*) indicates that the records of that post for that period are physically bound with, or otherwise closely related to, the records of a higher command. These post records are described in Elaine Everly et al., comps., Preliminary Inventory of the Records of United States Army Continental Commands, Vol. 4, Military Installations, 1821-81, PI 172 (1973). A double asterisk (**) indicates that the records of that post for that period are among the records of a succession of differently named commands that are the collective equivalent of a single, continuous command ("polyonymous command"). These post records are described in PI 172, Vols. 1-3, with each post's records described under the polyonymous command of which it is a part. The absence of an asterisk indicates that the records of that post for that period are maintained separately from the records of its higher command(s).
