This Parole list was created by William Nine and Ronald Wilson from Volume 15, of the Southern Historical Society Paper, published in 1887, Richmond , Virginia. The SHS Paper came from the original Confederate parole list, that was in the Museum of the Confederacy. The Confederate parole list is now housed at the Virginia Museum of History and Culture. Updates have come from numerous sources, including original parole slips shared by descendants or verified descendant information, original service records, and the Federal copy of the parole list at the National Archives.
