Civil War Materials

Civil War Materials

The Indiana Historical Society’s William H. Smith Memorial Library collects, preserves and makes accessible a substantial amount of material related to the American Civil War and especially to the role of Indiana’s people in the conflict. A Researcher's Guide to Civil War Materials at the Indiana Historical Society was created in 2011 with the start of the 150th anniversary of the war. The IHS also served as a member of the Indiana Civil War Sesquicentennial Committee for Indiana’s Civil War Sesquicentennial Commemoration. The Researcher's Guide was created and maintained by the IHS Collections and Library as a contribution to the 150th commemoration (2011-2015).

This expanded Civil War Materials listing uses the previous Researcher's Guide as a starting point. Indiana's participation in the Civil War was extensive and as such the IHS Library has collected a significant amount of material related to regiments and to the individual soldiers within them. This listing highlights only materials from our manuscript and visual collections. Materials in our printed collections can be found by searching the regiment in our online catalog.

It is expected that this listing will be in progress for the foreseeable future owing to the extensive collection materials housed at IHS. Questions about any regiments that have not yet been added to this completed guide can be directed to our Reference Department by emailing , by calling our Reference Desk at (317)234-0321, or by referring to the Researcher's Guide to see if we have materials related to that regiment.
