Union Regiments

This collection consists of the correspondence, muster rolls, miscellaneous records, clothing and equipment books, and miscellaneous military correspondence relating to West Virginia Union regiments during the Civil War.

The majority of the regimental records were delivered to State Historian Virgil Lewis by Mr. Thompson of the West Virginia Adjutant General's Office in 1911.

Muster Cards are included with each West Virginia or West Virginia related regiment (or militia) which include information compiled circa 1899 by the state Adjutant General's office from the official muster rolls, order books, correspondence, and other material included in this collection.

Restrictions: The Archives does not currently have the necessary equipment to make proper photostatic copies of oversized items such as muster rolls and order, descriptive, and clothing books. Staff may determine whether an item is too large and/or too fragile to copy.

To order copies or obtain further information about the collection, contact Terry Lowry at (304) 558-0230. There is a minimum, non-refundable research fee of $15.00 for out-of-state residents and $5.00 for in-state residents.
