Senior Vice Commander-in-Chief
It should be noted that since the end of the war, a LOT of information was either lost or destroyed. Especially with the Confederacy. As you will notice with a LOT of the rosters for both the Union & Confederacy, a lot of them are incomplete or have no names. Some units only have a few names that were found over the course of time. Units that should have over 1,000 men's names, might only have 3-400 or maybe less.
Starting to get a little overwhelmed with all the states that I'm doing. I wanted this to be the place to go to find as much information on state units for both the Union & Confederate's. I decided to cut back and start to doing what is referred to as "The Tri-State Area." There will be 3 Tri-State Areas that I will be working on and it will include 4 states. The New York metropolitan area which covers parts of the states of New York, New Jersey and Connecticut. (This is the most commonly identified tri-state area.) The next one will be The Delaware Valley region which includes Eastern Pennsylvania, southern New Jersey and Northern Delaware. (I won't be doing Northern Delaware) The Pittsburg tri-state area will include the rest of Pennsylvania, Ohio and West Virginia of which I will only be doing Pennsylvania and not Ohio and West Virginia. In case I confused you, the following states will be the only ones listed:
I will be keeping the U.S. Colored Troops, Generals of the Union, U.S. Navy and U.S. Marines
|Generals of the Union||U.S. Colored Troops|
|U. S. Marines||U. S. Navy|
