The Missouri State Archives database index project began in 2000, with the goal of creating a finding aid for the Missouri portion of the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) War Department Collection of Confederate Records (Record Group 109.14.4 Miscellaneous Records). In addition, through the cooperation of the Julius K. Hunter & Friends African American Research Collection at the St. Louis County Library, the Archives is happy to provide access to the African American recruitment lists from Missouri for the years 1863-1865, part of the NARA Records of the Adjutant General’s Office, 1780’s-1917 (Record Group 94). These records were generated by the provost marshal before being forwarded to the Colored Troops Division of the Adjutant General’s Office in Washington. This represents a virtually untapped manuscript collection detailing the national experience in the trans-Mississippi West. Completed in 2010, the database contains over 72,000 entries relating to Missouri, some 18,000 these relate to St. Louis.

During the Civil War and Reconstruction, Provost Marshals arrested deserters, spies, and disloyal civilians; investigated thefts involving military property or personnel; controlled access to military zones and transportation; and maintained records of prisoners, paroles and loyalty oaths. These documents include correspondence, provost court papers, lists of prisoners, orders, passes, paroles, oaths of allegiance, transportation permits, and war claims.
