Dear Mr. McCormick,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
We searched the National Archives Catalog and located Carded Records Showing Military Service of Soldiers Who Fought in Confederate Organizations in the War Department Collection of Confederate Records (Record Group 109) that contains the file Confederate Soldiers from the State of Georgia - Sparks, Samuel - 36th (Broyles') Infantry. This file has been digitized and is available online using the Catalog.
We also located a series titled Record Books of Executive, Legislative, and Judicial Offices of the Confederate Government in the War Department Collection of Confederate Records (Record Group 109) that includes records pertaining to troops from Georgia. For information about these records, please contact the National Archives at Washington, DC - Textual Reference (RDT1) via email at email@example.com.
