About this collection

American Civil War, 1861-1865

 

 

The American Civil War portion of the Nafziger Collection contains orders of battle from 1861-1865 with over 800 individual pdf files. It began with the author's interest in Napoleonic Wars, and steadily grew to other areas because of the gaming public's interest in these highly detailed historical orders of battle. Sources range from published works to actual archival documents, which represent the largest single source. Nearly all orders of battle break down to the regimental level. The availability of strength figures and artillery equipment varies from period to period.

 

This collection was provided through the generous donation of George Nafziger to the Combined Arms Research Library. Brett Schulte scanned the American Civil War orders of battle for George Nafziger.  They are available here due to their generosity.  Mr. Schulte writes a blog which is available at http://www.brettschulte.net/CWBlog.
