A good place to start is the national park service soldiers and sailors system. Click soldiers, type in the name your interested in and his side/state if known. Also, you can look into each individual regiment. Gives a good brief synopsis of that regiments engagements, etc. Also, a roster. Be careful with the LDS. During the early 20th century a researcher there sold bogus geneology data. When I find his name in my files I'll be glad to post it. I use ancestry.com a great deal. However, I've found some information there which was incorrect. A lot of their data is entered by individuals which can be spurious. I always try to verify my information from a second or third source. Also, contact the individual county historical society for information. Also, gravelocator.com is a good tool to use.
