About this Item
- Kvartirnoe rospisanie voĭsk otdel'nogo Sibirskogo korpusa.
- Квартирное росписание войск отдельного Сибирского корпуса.
- Disposition of the Siberian Army Corps.
- This small, handsome, leather-bound volume of 70 pages contains a detailed listing in tablular form of the Russian military units in West Siberia in the middle of the 19th century. At the end of the volume is a map, consisting of 25 folded panels mounted on canvas, showing the disposition of these units in the territory between Tobol'sk and Tomsk. The listings show the local military hierarchy by office and rank, with basic subdivisions for cavalry, infantry, and artillery. The names and ranks of individual officers are given. Separate tables for military hospital and engineer ranks are included. Fortifications in the area are also listed, along with the officers and units stationed therein. Other tables enumerate the Cossack units in this vast region. The presence of the Cossack units testifies to their long-standing importance to the Russian state in service on the borderlands of the Russian Empire. Since Ermak Timofeevich crossed the Ural Mountains in 1581, the Cossacks played an outsized role in the conquest and subjugation of Siberia. While the Cossacks began as a self-governing culture on the fringes of the Russian state, they ironically became a bulwark of conservative tsarist policies over the centuries and gradually were absorbed into the formalized military structures of imperial Russia, as highlighted by this volume.
