Civil War Links - Units, Rosters, & Soldier Information


The Civil War Soldiers and Sailors System is a computerized database containing basic facts about servicemen who served on both sides during the Civil War. The initial focus of the CWSS is the Names Index Project, a project to enter names and other basic information from 6.3 million soldier records in the National Archives. The facts about the soldiers were entered from records that are indexed to many millions of other documents about Union and Confederate Civil War soldiers maintained by the National Archives and Records Administration.

Over 197,000 men listed in this database.

Thousands of Civil War links arranged by State.  Virginia's husband started this website years ago and after he passed away she took it on as her project. If you can't find a link to it on this site, it probably doesn't exist. 

A major contributor to Arkansas Civil War information on the net.  Mr. Gerdes has passed away but the site is maintained by Brian Howerton, Jeri Helms Fultz and Jim Martin.  Lots of Rosters & Links listed.

The Confederacy raised between 764 and 1009 regiments over the period of the Civil War. The lack of adequate records precludes a more accurate count. Regardless of the actual number of regiments recruited, the list below is but a small fraction of those that were raised. It is hoped that many other Civil War regiments will find a "webmaster" in the future to preserve their history.

General Information, Confederate States and United States navies, American Naval Fighting Ships, Blockade Running, Blockade Vessels and Official Records of the Union and Confederate Navies in the War of the Rebellion.
