62d NYSV – Company F Roster


General index card from the CWSS system (sample)

This is a project I undertook abstracting data from the Civil War Soldiers and Sailors (CWSS) system to get a “snapshot” of a company in the Anderson Zouaves. I was interested in the numbers and identities of the veterans and their ethnic background particularly looking at the predominance of surnames of German origin. A research article from this was presented in a past publication and I will endeavour to bring this to readers’ attention in a later blog post.
