Biographies of the Civil War

Prefixes in this forum are used to denote a persons gender, as well as their affiliation with the Union or the Confederate States, (CS/Gray for Confederates, US/Blue for Union), and their rank at the time the Civil War ended, which applies 99% to men (Gold Stars apply to ranks of General, Silver Eagles to Union Colonels, 3 Silver Stars to Confederate Colonels). Confederate Generals have BG (Brigadier General), MG (Major General), and LG (Lieutenant General), among the gold stars used to denote their rank.

Some Prefixes are used to denote a persons profession or specialty (ie: the green 'H' identifies Medical personnel, The Anchor with USN or CSN is for Naval Personnel).
