There is no better book than this one to learn about army paperwork and forms. Written by August Kautz first as a series of orders and then published as a book in 1863, this manual was a best seller among army officers during the war. Its subtitle is "How and When to Make Out all the Reports, Rolls, and Other Papers, and What to Do With Them." Also on the title page, "How to keep all the books, records, and accounts required in the administration of a company, troop, or battery in the army of the United States."
