Enlistment Records

The records document the personnel actions recorded for members of the Oregon Militia and its successor, the Oregon Military Department. They may include enlistment statements, recruit examinations, descriptive and assignment cards, oaths of office, physical descriptions, appointments, recruit declarations, correspondence, reenlistment applications, vaccination registers, fingerprint cards, and related documents.
