From the Footnote™ blog we learn …
This month marks the 150th anniversary of the attack on
, the first battle of the American Civil War. Fort Sumter, South Carolina
The War Between the States as it is sometimes called, lasted almost 4 years and cost more American lives than any other conflict before or since.
In honor of this important anniversary, we are making our Civil War Collection free from today through April 14th.
In Footnote’s Civil War collection you’ll find:
- Union and Confederate Service Records
- Civil War Pension Index
- Southern Claims Commission Records
- Brady Civil War Photos
You can see other resources and learn more here.
Editors Note: The Southern Claims Commission Records and Confederate Citizens File collections can be a great resource for southern ancestors who did not serve as soldiers.
