Document Format Printed Document
Document Notes No tif image. DEII Candidacy: as a roster of all U.S. Army officers in 1796, this is a very useful document. However, it seems that DEII Conversion would largely consist of entering all the officers into the People/Groups field, which would be rather time-consuming. Left to discretion.
