Find Civil War Service in the Census

Chickamauga Battlefield

Did you know that the 1910 US census includes a column for Veteran which also identifies Civil War veterans? The codes are: UA for Union Army, UN for Union Navy, CA for Confederate Army and CN for Confederate Navy.


Currently I'm researching my Barrett and Barker families in Georgia, Tennessee, Mississippi and Florida. Other surnames in my family tree include Link, Gervais, Blake, Henry, Levy and Turnbull (yes, that Turnbull).

We'd like to hear from you.
