Civil War Service Records of those who enlisted in Caswell Co., North Carolina

 

Based on the numbers, it seems that almost every able bodied man in Caswell Co. enlisted during the Civil War.  We will add to the list as time allows and we invite you to share any service records you may have abstracted.  In other areas I have worked on, I have found that a number of blacks also served, often going with a slave owner or family member.  If you have any personal family stories or records of blacks who may have been in the war, we invite you to share them. The entries with cross denotes those who died, either as a result of wounds or illness. Send  me anything you would like to share and it will be posted immediately.
