Hello all,

I have run across a rank I know nothing about and can't seem to find any answers. This question applies to both Civil War and Revolutionary War. I came across a rank called "cadet" which I am unfamiliar with. All indications are that these "cadets" were not members of a local military academy, but gained this rank upon enlistment or promotion. Does anyone have any idea what this rank is and what its function was?
