Civil War by Regiment | Gilliams of Virginia

Civil War Soldiers Sorted by Regiment
Updated March 4, 2016

Background:
War came to Virginia shortly after its leaders voted to secede from the United States on 17 April 1861. For the next four years the Old Dominion was the major battleground of the Civil War. Its geographical location, being so near Washington, D.C., and the fact that Virginia's capital city of Richmond also served as the southern capital, guaranteed that Union armies would try to end the war quickly by capturing the seat of the Confederate government. By the end of the war in April 1865 Virginia had hosted over four hundred military engagements, including twenty-six major battles. The presence of so many soldiers marching and fighting across the state also devastated the economy of the Old Dominion. Farms and towns suffered under the weight of occupying armies. The war also ended slavery forever. Thus Virginia, home to the largest population of slaves in the country, experienced a difficult transition.


Overview:
Since the way a soldier's name was recorded, all the various ways a name appears in Civil War records has been included. One can use the table "Sorted by Regiment" to help one identify various individuals. For example in the 18th Regiment, Thomas M. Gillum is the same individual as T. Mann Gillum.
