Alabama Department of Archives & History:  Civil War Service Database

On-line database. This series contains information about individual soldiers from Alabama and was compiled from original sources such as muster rolls, pension files, and records at the National Archives. Service cards typically include the name of the soldier, his home county, his age at the date of his enlistment, the date and place of enlistment, and the company and regiment. Cards may also include a list of the engagements the soldier took part in; whether he was killed, captured, or wounded; and date of parole. The source of information is often cited. Arranged alphabetically by surname.  Currently only those records for individuals whose last names begin with "A - I" are available.

  • Gracie's - Moody's Alabama Brigade, includes the 59th Infantry from Autauga & Butler Counties, 60th Infanty from Lowndes, Montgomery & Butler Counties, does not list members but is a good start
