Hancock's 1st Veteran Corps

In 1864 an order was issued from the Adjutant's General Office, Washington, DC, for the organization of a new Army Corps to be designated as the 1st Army Veteran Corps, to be commanded by Major General Winfield Scott Hancock. The Corps was to consist of not less than 20,000 Veterans who had served 2 years in the military service of the United States and had been honorably discharged therefrom. The officers were to be commissioned from those who had honorably served not less than 2 years. A recruiting office was established at Jackson, Mi, the 3rd Congressional District, under the charge of Captain R.J. Barry.

As fast as the men enlisted they were furnished transportation to Washington, mustered into the service of the United States and credited to the sub-districts in which they or their families resided at the time of the enlistment.
