 U.S.A., Registri dei decessi nell’esercito regolare, 1860-1889

Questo database contiene i registri dei decessi dei militari facenti parte dell’esercito regolare degli Stati Uniti. I militari dell’esercito regolare erano soldati di professione che prestavano servizio nell’esercito permanente, a differenza dei volontari che in genere erano reclutati per un conflitto specifico.

This database contains death registers for U.S. Army Regulars. (Regulars were professional soldiers who served in the standing army, as opposed to volunteers, who were typically recruited for a specific conflict.) These registers were compiled by the Adjutant General’s Office. They vary some by date, but they may list the following details:

  • name
  • rank
  • unit
  • age
  • birthplace
  • length of service
  • date, place, and cause of death
  • race or nationality

The database also contains a few index volumes that list name, rank, unit, and date and place of death.
