Military Service


These abstracts were compiled from original muster rolls of New York State Militia units that were temporarily mustered into federal service during the Civil War. Thirty eight of the sixty-five militia organizations that served in the Civil War are documented in this series. The abstracts contain the following categories of information for each individual: date of enlistment; age (in years); place of enlistment and for how long; date mustered in; grade; explanation; and remarks.
