About American Civil War General Officers

The American Civil War Research Database is a historic effort to compile and link all available records of common soldiers in the Civil War. This database makes it easier than ever before to find information on ancestors who fought in the Civil War.

Historical Data Systems has compiled and linked a wide array of record types including state rosters, pension records, regimental histories, photos, and journals. The genealogical value of this record is immeasurable. More than authoritative names and dates, this database connects researchers with the history their ancestors lived.

The collection is divided into four sections, soldier records, regiment records, battle histories, and officer records. This section of the database contains detailed information on all officers who attained the rank of Brigadeer General or higher.

Update: This database has been updated with more records and enhanced with with some photos and soldier bios. The updated version of this database can be found at: U.S. Civil War Soldier Records and Profiles
