Due to a fortuitious bit of luck, an alternative set of census records exist for 1890. A Congressional act of March 1, 1889 provided for the taking of a special census enumerating those who had served (or their widows) in the military during the War of the Rebellion.
Each schedule calls for the following information: name, veteran's rank, company, regiment or vessel, date of enlistment, date of discharge, and length of service in years, months, and days; post office address of each person listed; disability incurred by the veteran; and any remarks necesssary to complete a statement of his term of service.
Practically all of the schedules for the states of Alabama through Kansas (alphabetically) and approximately half of those for Kentucky have been lossed, possibly by fire, before the transfer of the remaining schedules to the National Archives in 1943.
Civil War Veterans census microfilms exist for 34 states the District of Columbia and miscellaneous United States Vessels and Navy Yards.
