Civil War NARA Records Available online

Through its partnership with the National Archives (NARA) Footnote.com has been able to digitize and index records including Confederate Soldiers Service Records, the Southern Claims Commission Records, and the Lincoln Assassination Trial Papers. Each of these titles features information and details that few have had the opportunity to view.

Footnote.com brings to life these stories within millions of original Civil War documents, most of which have never been available before on the internet.

Footnote plans to eventually create the largest Civil War community on the web with additional options. Visitors to Footnote.com are encouraged to highlight and discuss what they’ve found. Members are also able to upload their own photos and documents and create their own footnotes by annotating and commenting on the records.
