    Seeking Civil War records of James Fitzgerald

    Wendi Gregorio Newbie

      Can anyone direct me where to search for military records for my 3rd great grandfather?  His name was James Fitzgerald and he immigrated from Canada to Erie, PA in 1861. He joined (presumably in PA) the Union Army.  I had always been told that he was taken prisoner and died in Libby prison sometime in 1862. Unfortunately I have not been able to find any records for him whatsoever and am hoping that military records will prove more successful. Thank you.
