Colored Civil War Question?
Does anyone know if, when reading the activity record of a Colored Civil War Troop, if the place where the troop was "organized" means the soldier lived in that state? (see example below). Also, is it known if soldiers/veterans often, or always settled where they were "mustered out"? I ask because I saw a few familiar surnames, but only found online records of their troops, not the individuals.
Peace & Blessings,
