Have you looked in the published Civil War roster from his state? They often include a notation of those who died in the war (either with his listing in his regiment or in a separate section for “Roll of Honor” or something similar). Many state rosters are available on Google Books. (For Confederate rosters, search for the name of the state plus “roster war of the rebellion” without the quotes.)

Tricia — It was so neat to see these teachers and how engaged they are with the project and how enthusiastic they are to work with their students!

I am researching an ancestor of my husband who we believe died at Shiloh, but as you know, many of the Confederate soldiers who died there are unidentified and the names of all who were buried there are not known.

I think this is a great project. Thank you
