Army Regiments


Did your ancestor serve in Arkansas during the Civil War?

The links below lead to lists of military units known to have spent time in Arkansas between 1861 and 1865. The list of Union units, culled from Frederick Dyer's Compendium of the War of the Rebellion, is probably comprehensive. Since no such resource exists for Confederate units, the list is gathered from a variety of resources. It will be updated as new information comes in.

Neither list includes information on places where the units served outside of Arkansas, so there are gaps in the timelines. Where possible, modern place names have been inserted next to towns that no longer exist.

Many Arkansans had relatives who served in regiments stationed east of the Mississippi River. Click here to learn where Arkansas Confederate troops served outside of Arkansas.
