Pennsylvania Heritage Society (Harrisburg, PA 17120)
Linda Ries (Project Director: December 2005 to November 2009)
Preservation of Pennsylvania Civil War Muster Rolls, 1861-1865

The 2,568 Civil War muster rolls represent every solder from Pennsylvania that served in one of 215 regiments and battalions raised by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. They contain information about name, rank, age, date and place of enrollment, period of enlistment, date and place where mustered out; and each soldier's final disposition, including information on those who were killed in action, sick or wounded, died of disease, or deserted. The acidic and embrittled documents will be conserved and placed in archival enclosures.
