Genealogy Series: Civil War Union Noncombatant Personnel: Teamsters, Laundresses, Nurses, Sutlers, and More
National Archives Museum
View on YouTube
The National Archives contains many records about noncombatant civilians connected with the Union Army during the American Civil War. However, the records are underutilized because there is no comprehensive index—no “one” place to look—and requires time-consuming research into obscure records. Digitization is slowly changing that, however! Claire Kluskens will provide suggestions for research with emphasis on online materials that can help you get started.
