locally out of print, available at Amazon.com
Read the stories of Civil War soldiers, brought to life through personal accounts, letters, illustrations and photographs, as told in The Civil War Soldiers of Branford, Connecticut by genealogist and Branford Town Historian Jane Bouley.
The culmination of 40 years of research and writing, the book presents biographical histories of nearly 450 soldiers from Branford, North Branford, and Northford. To complete this monumental task, Bouley referenced pension records, original letters, diaries, regimental histories, cemetery records, family genealogies, newspapers, and other resources. The book is the first comprehensive history of Civil War soldiers from this area of Connecticut. It includes a detailed chronology of the Twenty-seventh, Fifteenth, and Tenth Connecticut Volunteer Regiments, with summaries of most other Connecticut regiments.
However, The Civil War Soldiers of Branford, Connecticut is more than just an accounting of the war. Within its pages, readers learn about the soldiers themselves—through pensions and other original documents that detail military service, physical description, residence, occupation, and family information. Also included in this comprehensive book are more than 400 photographs and illustrations of the soldiers, gravestones, battles, military scenes, maps, and monuments. The extensive Appendix offers a Civil War timeline, list of soldiers by regiment, glossary, draft list, bibliography, and a name and place index.
