Biographies posted online
A primary objective of this project has been to collect, collate and publish updated biographical sketches of each and every one of the 1,412 men who at one time or another, served in the first organization of the 3rd Michigan Infantry.
After four years of uploading approximating one biography per day, all the sketches are now published online. To find a particular individual you'll need to either search the blog or scroll through the archives.
Although paper trails are severely limited fortunately new information does occasionally come to light through diaries, letters, or even photographs, that family members and collectors are willing to share with the public. It is the express hope of this project to share that information as it becomes available.
If you can help by all means do so. Sharing the information preserves it and that's the ultimate goal of this project.
