Civil War Soldiers for the Confederacy


The United States of America Civil War is still being debated. We will try not to get into the debate. Rather we will try to give genealogists information to help in the search for those, who came before.

The Civil War began when the Confederates bombarded the Union soldiers at Fort Sumter, in South Carolina, on April 12, 1861. The Civil War Ended the Spring of 1865. General Robert E. Lee surrendered to General Ulysses S. Grant at Appomattox Court House on April 9, in 1865.

Although the Civil War was fought in many different places, a very large part of the war was fought in Tennessee and Virginia. All of the states, north and south were involved in the war. The size of the armies in the field were different, because the North had a greater population than the South. In other words, the number of troops from the North far outnumbered the number of troops from the South. The number of soldier, who died in the Civil War was 620,000.

We hope that the information that we provide here will help you on your journey to find your family, and to know where your family fits into history. These Confederate soldiers are listed in order, with as much information, as we can find.
