The first four boxes area arranged alphabetically by soldier's name, and contain photocopies of records housed at the National Archives. The next eight boxes are arranged by state, and contains very few original documents in addition to photocopies. Next, seven boxes contain records of Pennsylvania veterans organized by Grand Army of the Republic post. The last box contains miscellaneous "Personal records" arranged by soldier.
