The NEWRoster of the Confederate Soldiers of Georgia
A project was begun in the early 1900's by Mrs. Lillian Henderson
to compile Civil War Rosters on the units formed in Georgia. In all
6 volumes were produced, the latest ca. 1950. These volumes covered
the Infantry regiments numbered 1-66.
This set has been out of print for several years, but is now available
on CD-ROM for $35.00.
