Question: After recently starting my family tree I found out my 2nd great-grandfather was a Confederate soldier living in Florida until 1922. Can you tell me where I might find out about him on the internet?
Answer: To determine which Florida regiment he may have been involved in I would suggest the "free "National Parks website - Civil War Soldier and Sailor System: http://www.itd.nps.gov/cwss/
You can also search an index to pensions awarded by the state of Florida to Confederate veterans online at http://www.floridamemory.com/Collections/PensionFiles/ Florida first awarded pensions to soldiers in 1885, and to their widows in 1889. The files can be acquired from the Florida State Archives - R. A. Gray Building, 500 South Bronough Street, Tallahasse, FL 32399-025.
