North Carolina Militia and Home Guard Records
I have wanted to identify the men who served in the North Carolina Militia and Home
Guard during the Civil War. The materials offer insight to the "home front" in North Carolina during the war. References to
North Carolina Troops confirm and add to the service records of our ancestors and relatives. A valuable tool in locating the
in-state service of our ancestors.

Home Guard Examinations
Little has been done on the North Carolina Home Guard during the Civil War. Now we
have the names, ages and physical conditions of about 3,700 men, many of whom were called to Home Guard duty in 1864.
Taken from an overlooked resource - a surgeon's handwritten copy of examina- tions
found in the Duke University Manuscript Collection. All information included.
A second section deals with men examined from the counties east of Salisbury
who are listed by unit designations. A number of the men had already served in Confederate service. (Don't overlook the possibilites
of genetic genealogy.)
