A House Divided: Michigan Civil War Research__ "More than 90,000 Michigan men, nearly 23% of the state's male population in 1860, served in the United States Civil War. In addition to the approximately 600 men who joined the Navy, these men served in 31 infantry regiments, 11 cavalry, 14 batteries of artillery, and 1 unit each of engineers and sharpshooters. In fighting to preserve the Union, these Michigan servicemen generated a wealth of genealogical records from which family history researchers can benefit."
