About ConfederateVets.com

ConfederateVets.com came about from the combination of several passions, Computers, the American Civil War and Geneology. Information on Confederate soldiers was gathered as part of a project to learn about databases for work.  This turned into a quest to  find out more about individual soldiers and their ultimate fate.

While researching my own families history in the South from 1700 on, it was discovered that a lot of good information is available on the Internet about Confederate soldiers, much of it is also old, incorrect or missing. This site is an attempt to document the lives of the many thousands of people who served in the Confederate Army and Navy, compile that information into a single repository and provide it to anyone interested.

It is the intent of ConfederateVets.com to gather this information from primary sources, these sources include The Official Records of the War of Rebellion, auto-biographies, diaries and letters of Civil War veterans, unit histories composed by members of those units, regimental rosters, Civil War era newspapers and periodicals, cemetery records, headstones and memorials. This list is not all inclusive by any means and we will consider any source presented to us.

We make no guarantees that the information will be 100% accurate. Some of the sources authors have made mistakes in places, times and names. We sometimes make errors in adding the information to the database. But it is our intent to correct all errors, so the most accurate database can be made available to the public.

Thank you in advance for stopping by and checking out our web site. If you have  any questions or information you would like to have considered for the site please send us and email at webmaster@confederatevets.com.

We hope you enjoy browsing through the site and are able to find someone you are wondering about. If you did not find the information you are looking for please come back often as the database is continuously updated and we have plans for new features.
