The American Civil War
in Alleghany County, North Carolina, and
Ashe County, North Carolina

NC SealNC FlagNo event in American history has affected so many people as the American Civil War. Additionally, no other war has generated so much historical or genealogical research. The following list gives abstracts of service records for soldiers from Alleghany and Ashe County, North Carolina. These records are not the entire service file, but rather what I considered the important portions of them. It is also not complete, but as near as I have been able to determine. If you have additional information, I would love to hear from you.

A - F
G - L
M - R
S - Y
