McCan(d)less in the Confederacy
McCan(d)less Men Who Served in the Confederacy

This may not be complete and we welcome any additions or corrections.  We have endeavored to record the names here as they are found on the records in NARA.  Many of these men could not spell or write their own names and whoever enlisted them into the service did the best they could with the name.  Some of the names were included because they were close to McCanless/McCandless and seemed to be names that we have in other records.  Many of these men are listed more than once because they served in different units due to field consolidation of their regiments and other reasons.

This page is not a memorial to the Southern cause but a remembrance of the courage of these few men who were called to service and did so.  Hardly any of these men owned slaves nor cared about the slavery issue.  They fought for their own reasons, it was a different time and a different world, one we do not need to revisit to appreciate the courage of men on both sides.  Indeed, there were McCandless men on both sides of the lines.  We can only pray that the tragedy of brother against brother and cousin against cousin shall never again visit this nation.
