Notes

Microfilm of originals from the holdings of the Harvard University Library.

This microfiche collection "includes basic reference works on the war history of each state and features hundreds of personal histories and other narratives, most written by Union and Confederate citizen soldiers in the home-state units that did the bulk of the fighting. The collectipon covers unit histories and narratives published from 1861 to 1920"--Publisher's brochure.

Part 2 consists of unit histories and personal narratives from the majority of units raised in the New England states of Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, and Vermont. Official state histories, state and U.S. adjutant general's offices reports, select reunion and monument dedication publications, and honor rolls and military records of several universities and cities have been included. The histories and narratives highlight the state military departments, local contributions of men and material to the war effort, and the trials and tribulations of the various units and their personnel"--Scope and content note, p. xiii.

Part 2 includes the following states: Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, and Vermont.

This book is a guide to Part 2 of 5 parts to a very large microfiche collection of Civil War unit histories. Each unit history is listed individually in the Guide and cataloged separately in the Family History Library Catalog under author/title, military unit, and locality. The Guide may need to be consulted first to get the exact author or title before looking it up in the Family History Library Catalog.

About this record

This screen shows the complete catalog entry of the title you selected.

The Film/Digital Notes contain a description of the microfilm or microfiche numbers. Some family history centers and libraries maintain collections of previously loaned microfilms or microfiche. A camera icon indicates items that are digitally available online.

Generally, catalog entries are written in the same language as the original record they describe.

Reasons why microfilms may not yet be available digitally on FamilySearch.org include:

  • The microfilm may be scheduled for future scanning.
  • The microfilm may have been scanned, but have a contractual, data privacy, or other restriction preventing access. FamilySearch makes every effort to enable access dependent on decisions of record custodians and applicable laws.
