Jeju Sogogun JeokbuMaster Roll of Sogo Troops in Jeju

After a drastic loss of manpower after the Japanese invasions of Korea from 1592 to 1598, the Joseon government allowed slaves to join the military for a temporary period to replenish their defenses. Such troops were known as sogogun, or regimental troops, and this document lists slave soldiers from the Jeju area. The list contains various information such as soldiers’ ages, parents’ names, addresses, facial descriptions, shape of mustaches, scars, and special skills.
