Civil War Unit Histories

Thousands of personal histories and other narratives about the Civil War have been published - often by private presses or state governments - but most were never widely distributed.  Fragile, unindexed, and scattered, these records have remained difficult for historians and genealogists to find and use.  Now University Publications of America has gathered these invaluable sources into one comprehensive microfiche collection called "Civil War Unit Histories: Regimental Histories and Personal Narratives." 

This collection is based on the standard bibliography by C. E. Dornbush and covers works published from 1861-1920.  This collection also contains number of titles not listed in Dornbush's work.  Types of materials included in this collection are regimental histories, personal narratives, and state adjutant general reports.  Periodicals, bibliographies and works published after 1920 have been excluded from this collection.

The New York State Library has recently purchased the microfiche collection Civil War Unit Histories:  Regimental Histories and Personal Narratives.

The NYSL now has Civil War Unit Histories for the following states: Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, and Vermont.  Access to items contained in this collection is through a printed guide.

This collection may be used on site or via interlibrary loan to any public school, college or business library in the world. For information on this collection, call the Microforms Desk of the NYSL at (518) 474-3092.
