Primary List and Information: Civil War Soldiers and Sailors System; “a computerized database containing very basic facts about servicemen who served on both sides during the Civil War. The initial focus of the CWSS is the Names Index Project, a project to enter names and other basic information from 6.3 million soldier records in the National Archives. The facts about the soldiers were entered from records that are indexed to many millions of other documents about Union and Confederate Civil War soldiers maintained by the National Archives and Records Administration.” SPECIAL THANKS to Barbara Rivas and Lauri Ivey who made a major contribution in abstracting, coding and searching the records in our project! All 3501!!

How To Submit Information Not Included On this Page -- Please post information to our discussion group, and remember to include sources including URLs.
