American Civil War Records

American Civil War Records


From 1861 to 1865, the separation of the Northern and Southern States almost became a reality. The American Civil War was father against son, and brother against brother in some of the fiercest battles ever fought. With state sovereignty and slavery at the heart of the conflict, Abraham Lincoln heroically saw America through this time. The cowardly assassination of Lincoln right before the abolition of slavery became constitutional, ushered the United States into a new era. Confederates against the Union, blue against gray, north battling south, all looking for a lasting identity that would carry them into the future. Through their eventual unification they were able to find it. Footnote provides you with the largest collection of Civil War records to be found anywhere on the internet, and truly brings this portion of history to life!
