MUSTER ROLL

COMPANY K

65th REGIMENT
GEORGIA VOLUNTEER INFANTRY
ARMY OF TENNESSE, C. S. A.

HABERSHAM COUNTY, GEORGIA

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Summary Analysis

The following diagram offers a way to evaluate the Muster Roll's exit comments for a particular member of Company K. The intent is to assist the reader in assessing the comparative uniquenes of the exit route taken by that member during the 36 month active life of the unit (May 1862 through May 1865).

The head count (N=146) does not include an individual who's name is referenced to another spelling of the name. Neither does it include a named individual who is fully described as a member of another unit of the 65th Georgia. Finally, if an individual is mentioned as being a member of the unit with no other comments; that is, 'present, but not otherwise accounted for,' then that person was placed in the 'Other' category.
