    Thank you for posting your question on History Hub!

    The National Archives holds Compiled Military Service Records for Union soldiers.

    Via the National Park Service website of Civil War Soldiers & Sailors Index, we were able to identify a CMSR pertaining to Private William Norris, Company D, 13th Maryland Infantry.

    You may order CMSRs at eservices.archives.gov by filling out and submitting NATF Form 86.
