Nevada Civil War Volunteers

Civil War volunteers from Nebraska and surrounding territories


With the onset of the American Civil War in 1861, the Territory of Nevada set a process in motion to create the 1st Nevada Volunteer Cavalry. This database consists of muster rolls indexes for this unit from its creation in 1863 through 1866. Information provided include the recruits name, place of birth (indicated by "Nativity"), muster location and date, date, location and reason for leaving the unit, and company and rank. Persons volunteering for this unit came from as many as 28 different states and 18 foreign countries, including the territories of Utah and Nevada and the State of California.

Accuracy: These index records are an accumulation of a number of different documents compiled and documented by the state of Nevada in 1986. As in any data compilation effort, there are bound to be some errors. An example may be, a "Joined" and "Muster Out" date that are identical. These types of errors appeared to be minimal and can be easily cleared up through reviewing the actual records. Additional information regarding recruits can be obtained from the Nevada State Library in Carson City, Nevada.
