Researching Ancestors who fought in the Civil War

If you are interested in researching ancestors who fought in the Civil War, pay a visit to the Civil War Soldiers and Sailors Database, provided by the US National Parks Service at https://www.nps.gov/civilwar/soldiers-and-sailors-database.htm.

The Civil War Soldiers and Sailors System (CWSS) is a database containing information about the men who served in the Union and Confederate armies during the Civil War. Other information on the site includes histories of Union and Confederate regiments, links to descriptions of significant battles, and selected lists of prisoner-of-war records and cemetery records, which will be amended over time. The CWSS is a cooperative effort between the National Park Service and several public and private partners whose goal is to increase Americans’ understanding of this decisive era in American history by making information about it widely accessible.
