The tables break the numbers of men down into the number sick, discharged, fit for duty, dead, etc. There are also very small entries tracking the movement of the militia, and there are also accounts of rations and money spent. There are also a number of diary entries detailing military activity for the same dates. Early typed transcriptions which have not been checked for accuracy are also available.
