What biographical information is available about John Taylor (the African American) civil war hero?

Please share with me any biographical information that exist about the African American (the civil war hero), as well as his Ute wife Kitty Cloud?

I am also seeking John Taylor's genealogical linkage to any Panis slaves?


    Thanks for posting your question to History Hub!

    Although the National Archives does not house strictly "biographical information" on Civil War veterans, we do house the military service and pension records of these veterans. The "Compiled Military Service Records" and "Military Pension Application Files" can often provide abundant personal details on the lives of individual veterans. For further guidance, feel free to reach out to our office directly via email at: archives1reference@nara.gov.

    We hope we can be of assistance.
