WAR DEPARTMENT,
ADJUTANT GENERAL'S OFFICE,

Washington, March 1, 1867. (CIRCULAR.)

This information is desired to enable the department to determine definitively the names of the battles which should be placed at the head of the list of officers of each regiment, as neither the reports of battles nor regimental or company returns, prepared during active operations, furnish data sufficiently complete.
