Colorado Volunteers from the New Mexico Campaign (1862)
M.S. Elswick compiled this index for the Colorado State Archives. The names in the following list were members of the First Regiment of Colorado Volunteers (Infantry) and two independent companies who fought in the New Mexico campaign (March-November, 1862). The First Regiment became the First Colorado Cavalry in 1862; the independent companies (James H. Ford's Independent Company and Theodore Dodd's Independent Company) became companies A and B of the Second Colorado Cavalry.
The Colorado State Archives has records for most of the men listed below. Records may exist either in the Transcript of Records or Muster-Out Rolls which generally have the Volunteer's name, place of birth, age, occupation, physical description, transfer and discharge data, and remarks.
