State Archives

If you know the state with which the soldier served, you should contact the appropriate state office for more detailed information. Check with the individual state offices about inquiry procedures and fees.

Include as much information as possible about the soldier or sailor:

Full name; Home county; Enlistment date; Home town/city; Enlistment place; Age; Unit; Place of burial, etc.

The more information that you include, the better chance the archives will have of providing additional information.
