The Revised Register is an important resource for anyone interested in New Hampshire’s involvement in the American Civil War. The original publication was a somewhat fragile, oversized volume containing over twelve hundred pages of information on New Hampshire residents who served in the Civil War.
The Revised Register is arranged by regiment, battery, or other organization, but it also meticulously indexed. It contains personal information about each soldier and sailor, such as: name, unit information, town of residence, period of service, any information about whether they were wounded, killed in action, died in service, as well as information available at the time it was published regarding their residence or death following the war. The Revised Register also provides significant context, with the inclusion of regimental or unit histories, lists of engagements in which each took part, as well as summary statistics for each unit. The work is invaluable not only for data on the soldiers, but also for historical context.
