Civil War Veterans' Card File, 1861-1866 {series #19.12}

These 3" x 5" cards were initially prepared as an index to Bates’ five volume set.

The Office of the Adjutant General later expanded the scope of the cards by transcribing

onto them data found on the original Civil War Muster Rolls and Related Records, 1861-1866.

The information generally includes the soldiers' names, military units, Bates' citations, ages at

enrollment, descriptions, residences and birthplaces; the dates and places where enrolled; the dates

and places where mustered in; and the dates of discharge. The listing is not inclusive.


This database was originally found by Linda McAninch, Marshfield, Missouri.
