The National Archives index shows 21,405 Federal soldiers in their California index and no Confederate rosters. In addition to the 64 men who made up the roster of the Los Angeles Mounted Rifles, there were others who fought for the Confederacy from California. If you know a name, please drop us a note so we can add their name to the index.

Many of the names found in the "REGISTER OF THE DEPARTMENT OF CALIFORNIA, GRAND ARMY OF THE REPUBLIC" list men who fought in units across the entire Union. The volume runs to 350 pages and contains service records on approximately 5,500 men. It is included on the California Civil War Soldiers Service Records CD-ROM.

Our Index contains approximately 2,700 names - about 10% of the total who served from California.
