      • Delaware, Civil War Service Records of Union Soldiers, 1861-1865
        Union service records of soldiers who served in organizations from Delaware. The records include a jacket-envelope for each soldier, labeled with his name, his rank, and the unit in which he served.

For each military unit the service records are arranged alphabetically by the soldier’s surname. The Military Unit field may also display the surname range (A-G) as found on the microfilm. This collection is a part of RG 94, Records of the Adjutant General’s Office, 1780’s-1917 and is National Archive Microfilm Publication M1961. Index courtesy of Fold3.
