Scope and content

Sub-series consists of lists of officers dismissed from the militia for disloyalty, arranged by battalions. Prior to and during the Rebellions of 1837-38 several Proclamations were issued regarding the desired conduct and loyalty of militia officers. As a result of lessons learned and problems made apparent during the Rebellions, a general reorganization of the militia and recommissioning of militia officers took place by General Order 7 June 1839, which displaced many of the old, unhealthy, incompetent, and disloyal officers.
