United States Civil War Records of Confederate Nonregiment Soldiers, 1861-1865
Confederate service records of general and staff officers and nonregimental enlisted men who did not serve in any particular regiment, company or special corps. The records include a jacket-envelope for each soldier, labeled with his name, his rank, and the unit in which he served. The jacket-envelope typically contains card abstracts of entries relating to the soldier as found in original muster rolls, returns, rosters, payrolls, appointment books, hospital registers, Union prison registers and rolls, parole rolls, inspection reports; and the originals of any papers relating solely to the particular soldier. For each military unit the service records are arranged alphabetically by the soldier's surname. This collection is a part of RG 109, War Department Collection of Confederate Records and is National Archive Microfilm Publication M331. Index courtesy of Fold3.
