Vermont in the Civil War

We are a grassroots project documenting the story of the State's contributions to the war, and what happened to the participants during and after the war. For the purposes of this project, anyone who was born or died in Vermont, regardless of where they served, and anyone who served in a Vermont unit, regardless of where they were born, we consider a Vermonter. To that end, to date we have documented more than 38,900 of Vermont's men and women who participated, on both sides of the war. (more)

Please join us and help make "Vermont in the Civil War a better place!
