The War of the Rebellion: a Compilation of the Official Records of the Union and Confederate Armies

May 8, 1865, Headquarters, Department of Mississippi, Major General N.J.T. Dana to Brigadier General William Hoffman

Vicksburg, May 8, 1865.

 Brig. Gen. WILLIAM HOFFMAN,  U.S. Army,
Commissary. General of Prisoners:

GENERAL: I have the honor to forward herewith rolls of prisoners of war delivered at this place on parole by Lieut. Col. H. A. M. Henderson, assistant agent of exchange, C. S. Army, for the States of Ohio, Michigan, Indiana, Tennessee, Kentucky, and Virginia. This completes the record of the whole of the deliveries at this place, with the exception of those which have taken place since the 1st instant, of which special reports have or will be made.

The majority of the men named on the rolls transmitted herewith were on the Sultana. All such were originally checked thus (√), but since the shipment some names have been checked on the same rolls, so that it is impracticable at this time to identify the men who were on the Sultana, but a comparison of these rolls with the roll of men conducted to Camp Chase by Lieut. Ed. L. Davenport, Fifty-second U.S. Colored Infantry, on the 30th ultimo will show the name of each man embarked.

I am, sir, very respectfully,

 N. J. T. DANA,
