Civil War Military Records in the
U.S. National Archives
[Revised March 2, 1998]
T he U.S. National Archives has compiled military service records for all Union and Confederate soldiers and sailors who served in volunteer units during the Civil War and who are identified in contemporaneous military records. These records are an essential starting point for anyone wanting information on a Confederate soldier or sailor and the unit he served in. Compiled service records for Confederate servicemen are part of Record Group 109 (War Department Collection of Confederate Records). The Archives also has compiled military service records for volunteers from the Revolutionary War (1775 - 1783), post-Revolutionary War period (1784 - 1811), War of 1812, Indian Wars (1816 - 1860), Mexican War (1846 - 1848), and the Spanish-American War and Phillipine Insurrection (1898 - 1903). Records of regular U.S. Army and Navy men are maintained separately. The National Park Service, in cooperation with the National Archives and other organizations, is planning to input the Civil War compiled service records into computer files for posting on the Internet. Compiled records for individual servicemen would, according to the plan, be linked to on-line information on battles, cemeteries, and other data that presently must be obtained by hard work from a variety of records and published literature. This is one of the most significant and ambitious projects in bringing Civil War data to the public in an easily used format. For information on the project, see

Nancy Justus Morebeck has just written a new book, called , Published by Heritage Quest. I had a chance to read this new one hundred and fifty-two-page book this week. Morebeck’s book describes the record holdings available at the National Archives, many of which are also available via microfilm rentals at a local Family History Center near you. (You can find the location of your nearest center at: .) The author also lists some other locations of records, including state archives. She describes the types of documents available and tells why they can be valuable to genealogists. She also tells how to order microfilms and photocopies of these documents.

    Union and Confederate Military Units
    Participating in 1865 Mobile Campaign
    Approximately 55,000 soldiers marched through Baldwin County during the months of March and April of 1865. The number is considerable as one realizes that there were less than 8,000 inhabitants living in the county in the census of 1860. 10,000 Confederates were stationed throughout the Mobile area, some 2,500 defending the City of Mobile while the rest were found at Fort Blakely and Spanish Fort. The 15th and 16th Confederate Cavalry, and 6th and 8th Alabama Cavalry were off roaming around Baldwin County, scouting the area for the movement of the Union troops. 32,000 Union soldiers marched through the entire length of Baldwin County up the eastern shore while 14,000 Union troops came out of Pensacola, traveled due north, then turned back south in a surprise movement to invest Blakeley.

    from a drawing appearing in “ The Soldier in
    Our Civil War.”
    The hand coloring is modern.
    There is no finer American tragedy than the Civil War, or as my great grandfather called it, the “War of Yankee Aggression.” He was not a soldier, but victim of the war. He simply lost a finger during a hasty evacuation of civilians from Tuscumbia Alabama. He was one of the lucky ones. I have heard many times that after the war and well into the 20 th century, it was common through out our nation to see men with missing parts; reminders of that uncivil war. And then there are those that just died. They died from minnie balls and grapeshot, dysentery and cholera, and host of other causes. Those captured might have been imprisoned in horrible filthy places like Andersonville or Rock Island. Civilians suspected of guerilla activities were often hanged, usually within minutes or hours of a military “trial.” Young teenage boys were forced into the armies. Mothers are known to have change Bible birth dates to make their sons appear younger and therefore hopefully not draftable. Bushwhackers, or murders as they should be called, roamed the county side, doing there evil deeds. Women were often harassed and occasionally suffered indignities far more grave. Farms and homes were burned. Looting was the order of the day. The Civil War may have been many things, but one thing it was not, it was not glorious.

    Sources for Military Records
    While the Society is not an official repository for original military personnel records, it does have many books and rolls of microfilm that include lists of soldiers' names, biographies of military men, and reports of military activities. In addition, the Society has indexes and guides to records kept by other institutions. The Newspaper Library has a card index to subjects and individuals' names which appeared in St. Louis newspapers dated 1808-1828. It can be helpful in locating items concerning early Indian wars and the War of 1812. The Liberty Tribune card index, covering newspapers dated 1843-1869, and the Columbia Missouri Statesman card index 1844-1885, are useful for Mexican War and Civil War research. Compiled Service Records of Volunteer Union (and Confederate) Soldiers Who Served in Organizations From Missouri are on microfilm. Both sets of service records have microfilm indexes accessed by surname. These records are duplicates of those in the National Archives, Washington, DC. The Society cannot offer copies of these records. The 1890 Missouri Census Index of Civil War Veterans or Their Widows , a printed index to the special census of 1890 microfilm, is also available. This index contains mostly Union veterans, but some Confederates are also listed. It covers veterans living in all Missouri counties except Daviess, DeKalb, Dodge, Gentry, and Van Buren.

    Reparations for Slavery:
    They have already been paid
    War is hell, you cannot refine it. W.T. Sherman The topic of reparations for American black slavery has been much discussed, and that discussion is not over. I think that such reparations are not justified. Unlike most who argue against monetary reparations, I think they are not only possible (though difficult) but justif no other payment had yet been made. However, reparations for slavery have already been made. The name of the reparations program was "The American Civil War." Consider the following facts
  • About 11% of the total population (counting men, women and children) of the 1860 United States was in military service for some portion of the war; from the Confederate States considered separately, about 13% of the total population was enrolled. Of those enrolled in military service, the vast majority were white and all were male. Of the (overwhelmingly white) men enrolled in military units, Union and Confederate, 14% died of their wounds or of disease; another 11% were wounded but survived. In Confederate units, deaths approached 19% of the men enrolled, an order of magnitude higher than the death rate in any other American war. This amounted to an aggregate 550,000 dead and more than 400,000 wounded

  • My First Success Story
    Many times the beginning of any part of a genealogist's research will start with a family story. My search for a Union Civil War veteran began with my third great-grandfather, Xerxes Knox . I had a copy of a letter, written by his youngest son in 1963, to my grandmother. In it he stated simply that his father was a Civil War veteran, along with the date of birth and date of death for his father. Not much to go on, but then I hadn't yet found out about the wonderful treasure-trove of information that was waiting for me in a musty-old file in Washington, DC. On a visit to the National Archives branch in Seattle, I had spent the entire day searching for various ancestors and had no luck locating anyone in any of the places they were supposed to be. I had a half-hour to kill before closing and thought I would explore the back room. There was a tall filing cabinet filled with rolls of microfilm called the General Index to Pension Files, 1866 to 1934.

    Curious Find on Confederate Sub Links North and South National Geographic News
    April 27, 2001
    A "dog tag" worn by a Union soldier for identification was discovered inside the Confederate submarine H. L. Hunley, archaeologists said Friday.
    The find baffles researchers. Was it a war souvenir? Or did it belong to a defector or a spy? Perhaps a Union soldier asked a Confederate opponent on the battlefield to take the tag and send it to his family as an indication of his death. Hunley researchers say all these scenarios are possible.

Mount Everest Expedition The Hunley sank on February 17, 1864, when it attacked the Union's Housatonic, becoming the first submarine to sink a warship. The sub and its crew of nine never returned from the mission. The remains of the sub were found 131 years later, in May 1995, in the mud of Charleston Harbor, and were raised in August 2000. Since then, scientists have been painstakingly recovering the bones of the crew and other artifacts from the sludge-filled submarine hull. At a news conference in Charleston on Friday, scientists said the name on the Union dog tag is Ezra Chamberlin. Records indicate he enlisted in the Union Army on September 6, 1861, and was a member of Company K, 7th Regiment, Connecticut Volunteers.
