This book specifically contains the names of soldiers of the era in a series of tables, which include such information as rank, birthplace, company, and regiment. The names were derived from "Muster Rolls, 1755-1756" of Volume 94 of the Massachusetts Archives, according to the introduction. This book is especially useful for those interested in learning about those that were involved in military engagements prior to the Revolution.
The work comprises letters form solders, governors, and surgeons general during the Civil War. Its goal was to write the part of Massachusetts during the Civil War. A more personal perspective is provided than muster rolls. There are two volumes for this set, both containing maps, while a transcribed version is linked.
While the names themselves are not indexed, the work provides an alphabetical list of soldiers served. The information was compiled from the archives of the Secretary of the Commonwealth. Included are company and battles associated with the soldiers. The set comprises 18 volumes. A link to digitized copies is provided, but not all volumes are available in digital form.
