This project is used to collate all units from New York who served in the Union Army.

This Project was started to list all the Units...a list of units not people...but because many profiles do not specify the exact unit the person served in the purpose of this project has now been expanded to be a collection of profiles that served in any NY unit. If you know the exact unit a person served in you should also add him or her to that specific Project as well.
