Civil War Histories for New Yorkers Now Online

The New York State Military History Museum and Veterans Research Center is making capsule histories of 360,000 New York Civil War soldiers available online.

The entire roster of New Yorkers who served during the Civil War years, 1861-65, is now available online, as well as the five annual reports issued by the Bureau of Military Statistics from 1864 to 1868 that chronicle the accomplishments of New Yorkers in battle.

The database is free and available at http://dmna.state.ny.us/historic/reghist/civil/civil_index.htm
