It includes indexed, searchable information on 4.3 million soldiers and thousands of battles, together with 16,000 photographs. It contains all of the more than 4,600 known regimental rosters, 3,461 regimental chronicles, and 1,010 officer profiles. In addition to 222 volumes of the rosters published by the state Adjutants Generals, there are the military records for every individual; the Official Records; pension index records; 1860 census records; GAR records; Roll of Honor records; Medal of Honor records; and regimental histories. A gift from Howard Holsenbeck, class of 1963, supported the acquisition of this database.
