Dear Mr. Gleditsch,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
We searched the National Archives Catalog and located two series titled Accounts of Medical Purveyors, 1864 - 1867 and Invoices of Medical Property Issued by the Medical Purveyor's Office at Harrison's Point, Virginia, 7/1862 - 9/1862 in the Records of the Office of the Surgeon General (Army) (Record Group 112) that may list various medical purveyors during the Civil War. For access to these records, please contact the National Archives at Washington, DC - Textual Reference (RDT1) via email at email@example.com.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and pursuant to guidance received from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), NARA has adjusted its normal operations to balance the need of completing its mission-critical work while also adhering to the recommended social distancing for the safety of NARA staff. As a result of this re-prioritization of activities, you may experience a delay in receiving an initial acknowledgement as well as a substantive response to your reference request from RDT1. We apologize for this inconvenience and appreciate your understanding and patience.
We also located 56 digitized file units in the series Letters Received, 1805 - 1889 in the Records of the Adjutant General's Office, 1762 - 1917 (Record Group 94) that are from different medical purveyors during the Civil War. In addition, we located the series Record Books of Executive, Legislative, and Judicial Offices of the Confederate Government, 1874 - 1899 in the War Department Collection of Confederate Records (Record Group 109) that include 48 digitized file units consisting of 3 account books and soldiers listed on Register of Medical Purveyor’s Office. The three account books are titled Record Books of the Confederate Army of Tennessee, Record Books of the Confederate Western Department, and A&IGO (Adjutant & Inspector General’s Office)- Special Orders, 1862 - 1863. We were unable to locate information pertaining specifically to the Medical Purveyor’s Office at Nashville or about the 3 men you listed.
We hope this is helpful. Best of luck with your research!
