The Civil War Soldiers and Sailors System (CWSS) is a database containing information about the men who served in the Union and Confederate armies during the Civil War. Other information on the site includes histories of Union and Confederate regiments, links to descriptions of significant battles, and selected lists of prisoner-of-war records and cemetery records, which will be amended over time. The CWSS is a cooperative effort between the National Park Service and several public and private partners whose goal is to increase Americans' understanding of this decisive era in American history by making information about it widely accessible.
For both Union and Confederate volunteer units raised by states, there may be additional information in the custody of the relevant state archives. Also, the staff of some Civil War related museums and U.S. state historical societies and museums may be able to assist you with your research.
Many histories have been published about various Civil War units, ranging from books written soon after the war by veterans of the units to works by recent authors. We suggest searching libraries (to include the Library of Congress and relevant state libraries), retailers, and online sites such as Google Books, the Internet Archive, and HathiTrust.
Please review the Civil War Records: Basic Research Sources from the National Archives, US Civil War: Selected Resources from the Library of Congress, Civil War Research and Commemoration from the U.S. Army Center of Military History, and Beginning United States Civil War Research from FamilySearch.
We hope this information is helpful and best of luck with your research!
