Civil War Armies and Soldiers

The Civil War produced some of the biggest armies of volunteers seen at that time. Men ranging from 18-45 fought and died on many different fields and forests. They came from all kinds of occupations-doctors, lawyers, shopkeepers, farmers, laborers, and so on. On this page I will explain CW army structure on both sides, commanding generals of the armies, and the life of the enlisted man. Bare with me though--This is going to take awhile.Check back every few days to check for updates.
