Researching Civil War Ancestors

Almost 3.5 million soldiers are believed to have been involved in the American Civil War, with around 360,000 Union soldiers and 260,000 Confederate soldiers losing their lives as a direct result. Given the dramatic impact of this conflict, if your ancestors lived in the United States during this time, it is likely that you'll find at least one Civil War soldier in your family tree.
