Civil War Service Database

Information in this database was compiled from a multitude of sources at the Alabama Department of Archives and History. Beginning in the early 1900s, the Archives staff read through muster rolls, newspapers, governors' records, veterans' censuses, and state pension records to create a card file that was arranged alphabetically by servicemen’s names. Each time a source was discovered, a new card was created; thus, an individual might have multiple cards. The records also include entries for slaves. Search for 'slave' in the surname field. The information on the cards was transcribed in this searchable database.
