North Carolina Troops 1861 - 1865

We have just added North Carolina Troops 1861 - 1865 A Roster to our collection. This is a set of 18 volumes. The rosters contained in each volume are arranged numerically by regiment or battalion and then alphabetically by company, and each roster is preceded by a unit history. Officers and enlisted men are then listed in separate sections, the arrangement being (with a few exceptions) alphabetical by surname. Each name is followed by a service record that includes information such as the soldier's county of birth and residence; his age and occupation at time of enlistment; promotions; whether he was wounded, captured, or killed; and whether he deserted or died of disease.

This collection will be on the shelf at R GEN 929.3756 NOR starting Wednesday, August 3rd. Due to its size, it will not be housed in the "New Genealogy" section.
