CIVIL WAR COMPILED MILITARY SERVICE RECORDS
"The Civil War Compiled Military Service Records are part of a historic effort to compile and link all available records of soldiers serving in individual states during the Civil War. This database is a listing of over 5.3 million men who served in the war. Taken from records housed in the National Archives, each record provides the soldier's name, company, and unit. Also provided is the individual's rank when inducted and rank when discharged. For researchers of ancestors who may have served in the American Civil War this can be an informative database.
Extended Description:Union records were taken from National Archives Record Group 94. Confederate records were taken from National Archives Record Group 109 microfilm series M253."
Happy family tree climbing!
