Civil War Research

 

 

The New England Civil War Museum is a great place to either begin or continue your research into a particular soldier, unit, campaign or battle during the Civil War.  While our museum was originally founded by the veterans with the aim to remember their local Rockville comrades, we have expanded since then and now have a variety of resources from across the country that include both wartime and post-war veterans groups materials.
