FINAL STATEMENTS, 1862-1899

If you’re a military history nut, you will probably want to subscribe to Fold3 at some point. One collection available there is Final Statements, 1862-1899. It’s a digitization of the paperwork generated when a soldier in the Regular Army died during the period 1862-1899 (currently digitization is 96% complete). The amount of information provided for each soldier varies, but generally includes:

Name
Rank
Regiment & Company
Company Captain’s Name
Enlistment Place & Date
Place & Date of Birth
Place & Date of Death
Place & Date of Burial
Spouse’s Name & Residence
Inventory of Effects
Payment Due to Soldier’s Estate

Here’s a list of all collections currently available at Fold3 (nearly 76 million images and counting):
