Civil War Roster Index is online
Historians, genealogists and kin can now view online a master index of approximately 115,000 North Carolinians who fought in the Civil War. The online cumulative index covers 18 volumes of "North Carolina Troops, 1861-1865: A Roster." The online index contains an entry for each man listed in the series with the volume number and page number where his service record is listed or where he is otherwise mentioned. It does not list company and regiment but cross referencing of variant name spellings is available. The index database also contains entries for all the persons, places and military units mentioned in the histories.
In the print volumes, the rosters are arranged numerically by regiment or battalion and alphabetically by company. Most public and academic libraries hold volumes of the "North Carolina Troops" series. Individual volumes and copies of individual pages can be purchased from Historical Publications at the second website below.
