Dear Mr. Lofft,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
We searched the National Archives Catalog and located a series titled Indexes to the Carded Records of Soldiers Who Served in Volunteer Organizations During the Civil War in the Records of the Adjutant General's Office, 1762-1917 (Record Group 94) that includes a card for Miller, Joseph - Unit: 49th Infantry, Company: I - Enlistment Rank: Pvt, Discharge Rank: Pvt. While the index card is not the full military record for Joseph Miller, it indicates that there may be a copy of his military service record in the series “Carded Records Showing Military Service of Soldiers Who Fought in Volunteer Organizations During the American Civil War, 1890 - 1912" also in Record Group 94. Most of the service records in this series have been made available via microfilm and through digitization of the microfilm. Unfortunately, the records for Indiana have not been microfilmed or digitized. For access to his military records, please contact the National Archives at Washington, DC - Textual Reference (RDT1) via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We hope this information is helpful. Best of luck in your family research!
