Part VI: Northeast Regimental Histories

Sherman with Union Veterans 1888

Sherman with Union Veterans 1888

These valuable research sources offer unique perspectives on the Civil War. They provide details on the organization and achievements of particular units, including such items as regimental rosters, transportation documents, honor rolls and casualty statistics and promotion and court martial documents.

The vast majority were written in the thirty-five years between the end of the war and the end of the Nineteenth Century. Most were written by unit veterans, and often by the regimental chaplains, primarily as a service chronicle for regiment members. The best include both a narrative of the regiment’s service and anecdotal material by the soldiers, and often are filled with photos of unit members, portraits, maps and additional illustrations.
