A Roster of North Carolina Troops in the War Between the States-- Part 3: A Whole Lot of Information

Louis H. Manarin headed the Civil War Roster Project from 1961 to February 1970 when Weymouth T. Jordan Jr. took over the editorship.  Rosters are arranged alphabetically by company.  A field and staff sections precedes the company roster of each regiment.

Within each company roster, officers and enlisted men, excluding captains, appear alphabetically in separate sections.  Captains and field and staff personnel are listed by date of rank.  Each name is followed by a service record of approximately 100 words that includes, if known, the soldier's county of birth and residence, his age and occupation at time of enlistment, his promotion record, whether he was wounded, captured  or killed, and whether he deserted or died of disease.
