Town and City Registers of Men Who Served in the Civil War
Town and City Registers of Men Who Served in the Civil War: Complete Record Relating to Officers, Soldiers, and Seamen Composing the Quotas of Troops Furnished to the United States..in the War of the Rebellion
In 1863, the State Legislature mandated that the Bureau of Military Statistics collect and preserve an "authentic sketch of every person from this State who has volunteered into the service of the general government" since April 15, 1861. The six volumes that comprise this series were compiled in partial fulfillment of that directive. The volumes contain both military and civil information on New York men mustered into federal military or naval service during the Civil War. The registers provide military service data and personal biographical information regarding the men furnished by each town or city during the Civil War.
These records are in the NYS Archives. Click here for more information.
