Search Civil War Soldiers ~ Trace the Steps of Your Civil War Ancestor

This Civil War database includes the names, birthdates, service dates, casualty and unit information for the Civil War soldiers that we have researched at the National Archives. Search or browse our archive below for the military records of your individual Civil War soldier. 

We are continually adding information on Civil War veterans to this database. All of the military service data on this page is public information that we have worked to provide free of charge for genealogists, historians and the general public. 

You may submit a request for military records through our website for any soldier, including those that are not on this list.
