      I am interested finding the Subsistence Department Form 15 (Commissary's Receipts to Contractors) for Fort Sumter - September 1860 to April 1861.

       

      What options do I have available to capture that information?

      Thank you very much for considering this request

       

      Sincerely

          Dear Mr. White,

           

          Thank you for contacting the History Hub.

           

          While Form 15 is not the name of a series within RG 192, you may consider looking at the series titled Blotters for Subsistence Accounts, 1819 - 1879, which is described as “a daily record of various money transactions with commissaries and contractors for supplies and services.” There may be other information or series within RG 192 that are relevant to what you’re looking for - please look at the series titles that make up this record group in our catalog.

           

          To get more information about your records, and to have a NARA archivist do a stack check of the records to determine whether your research area is represented, you can email the archival reference team at archives1reference@nara.gov. You can also visit the Washington, DC NARA location for an in-person look at your records.

           

          If a quick survey of the records by an archivist is sufficient to determine that we have what you need, you can order reproductions of the records. This page gives information on how to pursue that option, as well as how to hire an independent researcher if your research needs are more in-depth.

           

          We wish you all the best with your research.

           

          Sincerely,
