Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War Grave Registration Database

If the Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War have their way, the Grave Registration Database will someday include every known resting place of a Union veteran. There are now about 380,000 Union soldiers represented in the database—an impressive number, though less than a tenth of the 4.2 to 4.8 million who served. Despite the title, almost 4,000 Confederate veterans are listed here as well. Submission of new records is encouraged.
