This index, for the most part, was compiled from that column, and is largely an alphabetical record of all the names and events of Fredricksburg VA for the ten years following the Civil War.
FORMAT OF INDEX:  A book-form index typewritten on 8½x11 inch pages. The entries are arranged in alphabetical order by personal name (last name first) or subject, followed by a brief annotation. Preceding each entry is a number which refers to the issue number of the paper. A list of issues and corresponding dates is shown at the front of the index.
SIZE OF INDEX:  8,500 entries in one 174 page index.
