About Michigan in the Civil War

This database contains a report compiled from reports of the Adjutant General and reports held by the War Department in Washington, of the services of Michigan regiments, batteries, and companies in the Civil War. This work is not a list of all the men who served in Michigan regiments in the War. 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.
