Please click the link above to get information regarding this compilation. NOTE:  The site has been updated and the link was changed.  So, you will also need to click on the link that says:  Nebraska Civil War Veterans (which will pull up a PDF file.).

 Basically this is a listing of soldiers of the GAR of Nebraska. It includes the GAR Post # and the Town and County the Post was located in. I extracted soldiers from the 27th Iowa only. Please note that a few did not have a GAR Post #, and therefore no city or county. I do note on the source page, that the names with no post # were taken from the 1890 Nebraska Census. I knew several from the 27th had gone to Nebraska, but I was a little surprised to see how many did.

*According to the Roster for the 27th Iowa, James McClaskey died during the Civil War. Since there was no POST #, it appears that this was taken from the 1890 Nebraska Census. His widow Louisa E. Dull was on the 1890 census in Nuckolls County, Nebraska.
