Overview

This "Unpublished" Roll of Honor is based largely on materials Mr. Hughes discovered at the National Archives, including records of national cemeteries omitted from the original series, records of headstone requests (often for soldiers who were buried in private cemeteries), and records of post cemeteries that eluded the original compilers. All told, something like 8,500 men are listed here with (usually) their rank, company, and unit. The data is arranged by state and therein alphabetically by cemetery, and all names are conveniently listed in the index. Following the lead of the original Roll of Honor, this work also includes the names of soldiers who were buried in post cemeteries on the western frontier, and it sometimes lists the names of civilians who were buried in post cemeteries--usually soldiers' wives or children. For institutions and individuals who own copies of the original Roll and the new Index, this is a "must buy" companion volume.

Booknews
A memorial to soldiers who died in defense of the Union during the Civil War, and in the expanding frontier, but whose names were not recorded in the published Roll of Honor. The names are compiled by cemetery location in all the states, listed alphabetically, and also including a comprehensive name index. Hughes based research on the records at the National Archives, existing records of headstones requests, post cemetery records, and on-site field work. Annotation c.
