Edward G. Gerdes Civil War Home Page
FEW WORDS about the term "deserted". Many of these soldiers have the word "deserted" after their names.. We would like you to know that this is from the Microfilm from the National Archives. These soldiers may have been separated from their Units in the heat of battle, joined up with other Units and continued to fight this war.. They may have had families back home who were starving and no one to plant their crops or gardens... They may have gone home to visit awhile with loved ones and then return, only to find that there were so many miles between them and their original Unit that rejoining them was an impossibility, and so they joined with others to continue to fight in the war.
If you have any questions about the validity of the term "deserted" after your soldiers name, please do send for copies of the original records from the Arkansas History Commission. There is a form that can be downloaded for this purpose... This can be accessed on the main Civil War page at the bottom. Click on the address link and down load and print a form.
These pages are in no way associated with Rootsweb or USGenWeb or any other site on the Internet. The material on these pages belongs to Edward G. Gerdes and have been researched by him or Bryan Howerton from the microfilm records or have been a gift from another researcher to put on the Civil War pages.... These Units are not public domain, but personal files on the Civil War Units. We have not, nor will we give permission for our pages to be used on any other site. You may copy your soldiers records but not whole Units or Companies to be used on another website. If you wish a lookup, we will as always, be happy to do so. If you wish to link to our site then please do. We don't want our information duplicated on another site, such as a whole Unit or a Company. You may want to research the microfilm yourself if you want more information then what we have allowed here.
G Gerdes (deceased) -
We would like to encourage Libraries who do not have the microfilm to make
copies of these units for use by their patrons.....
