Dear Mr. Harvey,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
We searched the Civil War Soldiers and Sailors System (CWSS) and located an entry for
Seigler, Aquilla S of Company F, 7th Regiment, South Carolina Infantry that cites National Archives Microfilm Publication M381, Roll 29. Therefore, we searched the National Archives Catalog and located the series General Index to Compiled Service Records of Confederate Soldiers (the SC portion is M381) that indexes records in the Carded Records Showing Military Service of Soldiers Who Fought in Confederate Organizations in the War Department Collection of Confederate Records (Record Group 109). While many records in the index and the carderd records have been digitized and are available online through the Catalog, the file concerning Aquilla Seigler of the 7th Regiment, South Carolina Infantry has not.
To request a copy of his service record, please download the NATF Form 86, fill it out to the best of your knowledge, and mail the completed forms to the address listed on the form. For more information see Requesting Copies of Older (pre-WWI) Military Service Records.
The Confederate services records are available in digital form and may be viewed online via Fold3. There may be a fee for using this service. Instead, please check for access at your local library as many library systems subscribe to these sites, making them free for their patrons
We also located Record Books of Executive, Legislative, and Judicial Offices of the Confederate Government, Confederate Muster and Pay Rolls and the Carded Records Showing Service of Military Units in Confederate Organizations in the War Department Collection of Confederate Records (Record Group 109) that may include files for the 7th Regiment, South Carolina Infantry. For more information about the non-digitized records, please email the National Archives at Washington, DC - Textual Reference (RDT1) at email@example.com.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and pursuant to guidance received from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), NARA has adjusted its normal operations to balance the need of completing its mission-critical work while also adhering to the recommended social distancing for the safety of NARA staff. As a result of this re-prioritization of activities, you may experience a delay in receiving an initial acknowledgement as well as a substantive response to your reference request from RDT1. Also, the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) has suspended reproduction and digitization services until further notice due to COVID-19. Orders will not be serviced until operations can resume safely. Once operations resume, document reproduction requests will be filled in the order in which they were received. We apologize for this inconvenience and appreciate your understanding and patience.
For both Confederate volunteer units raised by South Carolina, there may be additional information in the custody of the relevant South Carolina Department of Archives and History, the South Carolina State Museum, and the South Carolina Historical Society. Also, the staff of some Civil War related museums may be able to assist you with your research.
The federal government did not issue pensions for Confederate veterans, however many southern states did. The veteran was eligible to apply for a pension to South Carolina in which he lived, even if he served in a unit from a different State. Generally, an applicant was eligible for a pension only if he was indigent or disabled. In your letter to the South Carolina Department of Archives and History, please include the Confederate veteran's name, his widow's name, the unit(s) in which he served, and the counties in which he and his widow lived after the Civil War.
We hope this is helpful. Best of luck with your research!
