Official Records of the Union and Confederate Armies

The Official Records of the Union and Confederate Armies in the War of the Rebellion known as the Official Records of the Union and Confederate Armies or Official Records, is the most extensive collection of American Civil War land warfare records available to the general public. It includes selected first-hand accounts, reports, maps and correspondence drawn from official records of both Union and Confederate armies. Collection of the records began in 1864. In 1866 a joint resolution of Congress authorized the compilation and publication under auspices of the War Department. Seventeen Secretaries of War were involved in the process. In 1877, Army Captain Robert N. Scott was appointed by the Secretary of War as director of the Publications Office, War Records; the original title for the records was The Official Records of the War of the Rebellion and they were renamed The War of the Rebellion: a Compilation of the Official Records of the Union and Confederate Armies, which has led to some lasting controversy over the official name for the war.

As published, the records consist of 138,579 pages with 1,006 maps and diagrams assembled in 128 books, organized as 70 volumes grouped in four series, published between 1881 and 1901. Each of the four series of books in the compilation is divided into "volumes" numbered from the beginning of the series with Roman numerals. In series II, III, IV each "volume" coincides with a book. In series I, however, it was found to be impracticable, beginning with volume X, to confine "volumes," as units of content, within single books. Volume X and most subsequent volumes in series I were therefore issued in "parts" distinguished by subsidiary Roman numerals, each occupying a separate book. Beginning with volume XXIV, Arabic "serial numbers" were printed on the backs of the books issued, although these numbers were not included on the title pages, are therefore not universally used in citations. Series I — Military Operations Formal reports, both Union and Confederate, of the first seizures of United States property in the southern States, of all military operations in the field, with the correspondence and returns relating specially thereto Series II — Prisoners Correspondence, orders and returns, Union and Confederate, relating to prisoners of war and to State or political prisoners Series III — Union Authorities Correspondence, orders and returns of the Union authorities not relating to the subjects of series I and II.

It includes the annual and special reports of the Secretary of War, of the General-in-Chief, of the chiefs of the several staff corps and departments. A companion volume, the Atlas to Accompany the Official Records of the Union and Confederate Armies, was published in 1895, it included maps of military operations, a topographic map of the area of operations, some drawings of weapons, uniforms and flags. In 1966, the U. S. National Archives began publication of a five-volume set that comprised an arguably superior index to the Army ORs, Military Operations of the Civil War: A Guide Index to the Official Records of the Union and Confederate Armies, 1861-1865, microfilm publication M1026. Introductory material to the guide-index offers guidance to readers of the ORs: Documents printed in Official Records, were copied, for the most part, directly into type from the originals by printers of the War Department printing establishment; these printers had their trade's long tradition of competence in putting manuscript into and correcting errors.

They may not have been sophisticated about scholarly requirements for the reproduction of historical documents in print, but they were aware of the sort of problems involved and dealt with them according to shop practice, rich experience, commonsense. A large part of the content of the compilation had been printed as "preliminary prints" before the publication project received any proper editorial direction; the sheer bulk of the material involved prevented any meticulous wholesale review of the copying process by the editors responsible for the eventual publication. There were, of course, errors made during the copying process that did not get corrected or noticed in lists of errata, they were printers' errors, resulting from carelessness, difficulty in reading the manuscript, ignorance of proper names, the like. Since the documents were printed a second time from the preliminary prints, at the Government Printing Office, it is a wonder that there are not more mistakes of transcription. Editorial tinkering with the texts of documents is a possibility that must be kept in mind if the su

Kiler-ów 2-óch

Kilerów 2-óch is a continuation of Kiler movie, directed in 1997. The film premiered 8 January 1999 in Poland and like the first part it has received financial and critical success; the time flies and Jurek Kiler has forgotten the fact that he used to work as a taxi driver and that he was suspected of series of murders. He is now a public person, together with his girlfriend Ewa runs a foundation that raises money from all over the world, he is now a man of a great renown as he injects a substantial sums of money into various public institutions. However, the idyllic life becomes thwarted when two murderers who do their time - Siara and Lipski - do everything to blow him away. One time they hire a world-famous Polish murderer called Szakal, other time a Cuban hireling alleged Kiler’s double who, after many attempts, fail to carry out their "responsibilities"; the situation becomes more perplexed when Lipski obtains a pass for his daughter’s wedding and gets to know that his daughter Dona falls in love with Kiler whom she wants to marry...

Cezary Pazura as Jurek Kiler and José Arcadio Morales Małgorzata Kożuchowska as Ewa Szańska Janusz Rewiński as Siara Jan Englert as Ferdynand Lipski Jerzy Stuhr as Ryba Katarzyna Figura as Rysia, Siara's Wife Jolanta Fraszyńska as Lipski's daughter Krzysztof Kiersznowski as Wąski Zdzisław Ambroziak as sports commentator In 2000, the movie was nominated for the ORZEŁ for the best achievement in sound editing and the best achievement in editing. Siara’s villa in the suburbs of Warsaw is the same building as the residency of Edward Nowak in the Polish serial “Tygrysy Europy”; when two Young Wolves are coming into Kiler’s flat one can see a movie “Szwadron”, directed by Juliusz Machulski. In the scene at the airport Juliusz Machulski is holding a plate where is written “Barry Sonnenfeld” –, a real name of a movie director, supposed to make an American version of “Kiler”. One can spot a video camera operator in Aldona’s glasses; when Morales drives up outside Kiler’s block of flats he parks his hummer next to a van, whereas when Kiler comes down the car is parked farther.
