Confederate Soldiers

This page contains names and unit information submitted by researchers. If you have a soldier and his service information, please share it with the rest of us. As time and space permits, we will be adding "the stories" to our People Profiles. Thank you for helping all of us find these sometimes "missing men."

If you need "help" in locating your soldiers units, a great place to start would be the National Parks Soldiers and Sailors pages. www.itd.nps.gov where you can do a search by units or by name.
