This undertaking is rather large and needs as many interested people to assist as possible. As with any project such as this, considerable fieldwork will be needed to obtain the information that will eventually be placed into the National database. Individuals who wish to assist the SUVCW may obtain a Grave Registration packet consisting of a set of instructions, list of abbreviations and a Graves Registration form at the end of this Web page.
Many of these soldiers have the word "deserted" after their names. We would like you to know that this is from the Microfilm from the National Archives. These soldiers may have been separated from their Units in the heat of battle, joined up with other Units and continued to fight this war.
They may have had families back home who were starving and no one to plant their crops or gardens They may have gone home to visit awhile with loved ones and then return, only to find that there were so many miles between them and their original Unit that rejoining them was an impossibility, and so they joined with others to continue to fight in the war.
If you have any questions about the validity of the term "deserted" after your soldiers name, please do send for copies of the original records from the Arkansas History Commission. There is a form that can be downloaded for this purpose This can be accessed on the main Civil War page at the bottom.
