Historical Information

Collection of the official records of the Civil War began as early as 1864. Following the capture of Richmond and the end of the war, the records of the Confederate government also came under the care of the War Department in Washington. The Confederate records were designated the Rebel Archives. In 1867, Congress passed a law providing for the preservation and publication of both the Union and Confederate records. Captain Robert N. Scott was appointed to oversee publication, while Confederate General Marcus J. Wright was appointed to collect additional materials from throughout the Southern states. The majority of the materials in this collection are photocopies of items from the Rebel Archives.
