This annotated bibliography gleans from more than 400 genealogy and history periodicals articles listing military men in America's wars from the Colonial era to the Spanish-American War, whether their names appeared on tombstones or in roster lists, pension records, reunion rosters, or old newspapers. The work is arranged chronologically by war, then alphabetically by state and county. Entries for the Civil War are also classified by regiment. The juxtaposition of entries by geographic region under each war collects the scattered articles that appear in diverse periodicals. This arrangement will help researchers focus on the area where their ancestor may have lived or died.
