During the Civil War, Indiana raised about 210,000 men for the Union. Their records can be found in state records shown on this page, unit records which may be found on the military unit pages (see below for links), or federal records. For ideas on how to begin searching for your Civil War ancestor, see Beginning United States Civil War Research.
Soldiers and Sailors Monument at Indianapolis, Indiana

Introduction

During the Civil War, about 210,000 men served in the Union forces, mostly in the Army, thought 2,130 men served in the Navy. More than 60% of the Indiana regiments mustered and trained in the state capital of Indianapolis.

For more information, see the Wikipedia article, Indiana in the American Civil War.

Indiana Military Units

Most units were numbered, however, some were named. See the table below for lists of the regiments, battalions, batteries, and unassigned companies.


The information in the lists of Indiana Military Units comes from the Civil War Soldiers and Sailors web site. That web site can also be searched by the name of a soldier.

Indiana State Archives Records

  • Veteran Enrollments (1913–1922). An act passed in 1913 required township trustees to enumerate all persons living within the township who served in the army or navy during the Mexican, Civil, or Spanish-American wars, or who served in one or more enlistments in the U.S. Army or state national guard units. Later, this included World War I veterans. The law was repealed in 1922. The Indiana State Archives has seven 16–mm rolls, arranged alphabetically by county, thereafter by township, then by year. These begin with Indiana State Archives reel #3625. The records show name company regiment residence physical condition and for deceased veterans the names of widows and orphans. These microfilms are not at the Family History Library.
  • Veterans’ Grave Registrations. The Work Projects Administration (WPA) prepared indexes, by county, for 51 of Indiana’s 92 counties. The records are alphabetical by county and are at the Indiana State Archives. These are for Civil War, Spanish-American War, and World War I veterans. They are on cards, and have not been microfilmed. Cards are still being added to the file. There are over 100,000 cards showing name and cemetery.
  • Enrollment Lists of Draft of 1862. These records list all white men between ages 18 and 45. One set has the names of those men already enlisted, and the other mentions men who were eligible to enlist. The two sets of lists are arranged alphabetically by county, then township. They provide name, age, occupation, and deferment information. A few of these records are listed in the Family History Library Catalog under the county of residence.
  • Grand Army of the Republic (GAR) Records of Civil War Veterans. By 1890 about 40 percent of the Union’s Civil War veterans were members of the Grand Army of the Republic. The descriptive books of each GAR post usually indicate each member’s name, age, rank, birthplace, residence, occupation, and enlistment and discharge information. The Indiana State Archives has the GAR records and a reference guide that can help you find the name of the post that may have been established in a particular town. The Family History Library has some of these records. The following book lists the posts alphabetically by town:
- Carnahan, J. Worth. History of the Easel-Shaped Monument and a Key to the Principles and Objects of the Grand Army of the Republic and Its Co-workers . . . Together With a List of All the G.A.R. Posts in the United States, Alphabetically Arranged by Towns, With Time of Meeting, etc... Washington, D.C.: Library of Congress Photoduplication Service, 1992.

  • United States Adjutant General’s Office. Index to Compiled Service Records of Volunteer Union Soldiers Who Served in Organizations from the State of Indiana. Washington, DC: National Archives, 1964. (Family History Library films 881722–807). This provides the name of the soldier, his rank, and unit.
