Documenting Notre Dame's Student-Soldiers

In addition to my book, Notre Dame and the Civil War: Marching Onward to Victory (The History Press, 2010), I have a long-term goal of documenting Notre Dame's dozens of student-soldiers, including those who attended/graduated before the war, those who enrolled after the war as veterans, and - especially - those who answered the call by leaving school in the war's first years.

There are many more to come, but the links below to previous blog posts will give you some idea of the strategies I use to identify and document them.
