Civil War Rosters

“Records of California Men in the War of the Rebellion, 1861 to 1867”
by Brig.-Gen. Richard H. Orton, pub. 1890

 

This transcription project is only possible with the efforts of several volunteers generously donating their time to make these rosters available online for individual researchers. 

Permission is given to the California State Military Museum to copy some of these files for their website.  You may find helpful information on that site in relation to forts mentioned in General Orton's book. Their site contains a wealth of data in regard to California's military history.

No other information is available on any of these veterans.  The complete book is online.
