Dear Ms. Pittman,
Thank you for contacting the History Hub regarding your Civil War ancestor. Letters of correspondence regarding exemptions have been regionalized to area National Archives locations. Indiana records are stored at the National Archives in Chicago. Their contact information is below.
There a few examples of exemption files in our catalog. You may want to review. It looks like there are medical registers of examinations of enrolled men, recruits, substitutes, etc., that contain information about exemptions in the Provost Marshal records (RG 110). But most of that will be in the Regions. Some examples in the catalog include ARC #'s 2770101, 2775112, 2770104, and 7348138 (the last record has been digitized and is available in the catalog).

I hope this information is helpful. Best of luck with your research.
Thank you! I will contact them and look at the records you referenced.
