Rather it is a historical work explaining the history and service of the Michigan troops in the Civil War, Michigan's involvement in the War, and the work accomplished by the state in connection with the War. If your ancestor served in the Civil War in a Michigan regiment, this work could greatly supplement your family history research by providing you with information on the regiment your ancestor served in and other historical information on the service of Michigan troops.
