Information about ordering military and pension records from the National Archives for these men will be found on The National Archives site (use a search engine). Art = Artillery, Inf = Infantry, and Cav = Cavalry. The letters stand for the company the man served in within the individual regiment. e.g. B 111Inf = Company B 111th Infantry. Each of these men will have a military file. Pension records would have been filed by or on behalf of widows, dependent children, and dependent mothers. Military and pension records are ordered separately, costing $37.50 each, and can be extremely valuable sources of genealogical information.
