NEW YORK CIVIL WAR RECORDS (1861-65)
This database gives records of Civil War infantrymen from
southeastern New York (79th and 80th infantry units). It lists each
person's name, age, date, and place of enlistment, and outcome of
service. There is also a "Comments" section that lists the final
entry on the serviceman's record. Some of the men in the database
were from Pennsylvania; they temporarily served with the 79th
infantry from January to April 1864, and are therefore included with
the infantry unit's records.
