In the example below there are a number of notations such as (++), (E), (**), etc. Where do I find the meaning of these notations is the OR?

Maine Light, 6th Battery (F), (sq) Capt. William H. Rogers.
Massachusetts Light, 5th Battery (E), (||) Bvt. Maj. Charles A. Phillips.
Massachusetts Light, 9th Battery, (p) Capt. Richard S. Milton.

Thank you Hank. I guess the guys who produced the CD set decided I wouldn't need that information.

Which set? I thought the Guild Press version was just PDFs of the actual pages. Asking because I'm still debating getting a copy
