Based on the “History of Allegheny County Pennsylvania”
By Samuel Durant, Philadelphia: L. H. Everts & Co., 1876, Pgs. 231-240.
“In the Civil War, three million Americans fought and 600,000 Americans died, totaling more deaths than all those in WWI, WWII, and Vietnam combined. With sadness, brother fought against brother, father against son, and friend against friend. American families lost so many of its “favorite sons.” I am happy that I had the opportunity to contribute to this fascinating historical period by indexing Samuel Durant’s Honor Roll as listed in his History of Allegheny County, Pennsylvania. This database contains 2,077 names of those who served in the Union Army from Allegheny County and it includes regiments, companies, death dates, and death places and, in some instances, burial places. Dedicated to these very brave men, it is my hope that it helps those who are looking for their Civil War ancestors. I would like to thank Diane Ragan, CGRS and librarian for the Soldiers and Sailors’ Memorial Library, for proposing this project. I appreciate her support and mentorship that she has given to me throughout this project. Thank you, Diane.”
