Extractions: Background and title banner graphics property of Cyndi Howells. Table of Contents Many times the beginning of any part of a genealogist's research will start with a family story. My search for a Union Civil War veteran began with my third great-grandfather, Xerxes Knox . I had a copy of a letter, written by his youngest son in 1963, to my grandmother. In it he stated simply that his father was a Civil War veteran, along with the date of birth and date of death for his father. Not much to go on, but then I hadn't yet found out about the wonderful treasure-trove of information that was waiting for me in a musty-old file in Washington, DC. On a visit to the National Archives branch in Seattle, I had spent the entire day searching for various ancestors and had no luck locating anyone in any of the places they were supposed to be. I had a half-hour to kill before closing and thought I would explore the back room. There was a tall filing cabinet filled with rolls of microfilm called the General Index to Pension Files, 1866 to 1934.

Extractions: September 24-25, 2004 Tracing your ancestor's service in the Confederate army during the Civil War can be a very rewarding part of genealogical research. As the first state to secede from the Union, South Carolina has had an abiding interest in preserving a record of the Palmetto State's service to the Confederate States of America. Today, the South Carolina Department of Archives and History continues that tradition with its collection of Confederate military records. The records listed below, consisting of National Archives' microfilm and original documents from various state agencies, are the primary tools for tracing your ancestor's Confederate service. A Guide to Civil War Records , a more in depth description to our Civil War collection is available from our publications branch. All the records listed below are available to the public in SC Archives' Reference Room. For your ease, we have broken the list into two groups: military service records and veteran benefit records.
Extractions: The Hunley sank on February 17, 1864, when it attacked the Union's Housatonic, becoming the first submarine to sink a warship. The sub and its crew of nine never returned from the mission. The remains of the sub were found 131 years later, in May 1995, in the mud of Charleston Harbor, and were raised in August 2000. Since then, scientists have been painstakingly recovering the bones of the crew and other artifacts from the sludge-filled submarine hull. At a news conference in Charleston on Friday, scientists said the name on the Union dog tag is Ezra Chamberlin. Records indicate he enlisted in the Union Army on September 6, 1861, and was a member of Company K, 7th Regiment, Connecticut Volunteers.

Extractions: Union Compiled Service Records There are compiled service records for nearly all soldiers who were accepted for service in the Union army as militiamen or volunteers, 1861-1865, whether or not they actually served. Compiled service records consist of a card or cards containing information abstracted from such original records as muster rolls, regimental returns, and medical and prison registers. The records usually show a soldiers presence or absence on certain dates, his rank and military organization, and the term of his service. Civil War service records may provide information about a soldiers imprisonment. If he was captured, his record may show the date of his release and parole or the details of his death if he died in prison. Sometimes they list the soldier's age, place of enlistment, place of birth and may even provide a physical description. These records are valuable for proving military service.

Extractions: We are able to search a number of Confederate records held by the National Archives, but keep in mind that these records are often fragmentary due to incomplete muster and descriptive rolls. For some companies such rolls were not even prepared; for many, only a part of the required information was provided and for hundreds of others, records have been lost or destroyed. Moreover, some soldiers served in State militia units that were not mustered into Confederate service. These Confederate records can often be located at the appropriate state archives.

Reparations Have Already Been Paid For Slavery (3). Of the (overwhelmingly white) men enrolled in military units, union and confederate,14% died of their wounds or of disease; another 11% were wounded but http://www.bluffton.edu/~bergerd/essays/reparations.html
Extractions: War is hell, you cannot refine it. W.T. Sherman The topic of reparations for American black slavery has been much discussed, and that discussion is not over. I think that such reparations are not justified. Unlike most who argue against monetary reparations, I think they are not only possible (though difficult) but justif no other payment had yet been made. However, reparations for slavery have already been made. The name of the reparations program was "The American Civil War." Consider the following facts About 11% of the total population (counting men, women and children) of the 1860 United States was in military service for some portion of the war; from the Confederate States considered separately, about 13% of the total population was enrolled. Of those enrolled in military service, the vast majority were white and all were male. Of the (overwhelmingly white) men enrolled in military units, Union and Confederate, 14% died of their wounds or of disease; another 11% were wounded but survived. In Confederate units, deaths approached 19% of the men enrolled, an order of magnitude higher than the death rate in any other American war. This amounted to an aggregate 550,000 dead and more than 400,000 wounded
