Soldiers raised directly by the Confederate government were not identified with any one state. Several organizations were raised among native Indians and foreigners recruited from Union prisoners of war. The records consist of a jacket-envelope for each soldier with his name, rank, and unit. It contains entries from the time of enlistment, including all the information on his service career. Most of the records are arranged according to an organizational breakdown by regiment, battalion, or company. Within a unit, the records are arranged alphabetically by the soldier's name.
