Online Civil War Resources

If you have Civil War ancestors, one of the best starting points online is the Civil War Research Database, available at Ancestry.com. This database is an effort to compile and link all available records of common soldiers in the Civil War. Historic Data Systems, Inc. has interlinked a wide array of records including state rosters, pension records, regimental histories, photos, and journals. The database is a work in progress and has, to date, digitized, indexed, and interlinked the roster records of 2,100,000 soldiers (out of approx. 4,000,000 who served), 2,719 regimental chronicles, 1,010 officer profiles, 3,343 battle synopses, and 1,012 soldier photographs. Visit Ancestry.com to search for your ancestors or particular military units. Other useful Civil War articles and sites include:
