Civil War Records #usa

The National Archives and Records Administration holds both military
and pension records for Union Civil War participants. See their web site at

http://www.archives.gov/research_room/index.html

for instructions on how to order files.
This is a worthwhile thing to do. The files, particularly the pension files,
often contain a wealth of historical and personal information concerning the
veteran.
Also note that the database of Jewish Civil War participants at

http://www.jewish-history.com/frmdbsearch.asp

is incomplete. Ancestry has two other databases of interest; one of Civil War
Military Records and the other of Civil War Pension Records.
