These are digital images I took of my great, great uncles civil war navy records. There are more pages but here are four. The records are still in the original tattered leather folder. Until I get them they will go uncared for and remain folded in the leather folder.
He enlisted in 1862 and retired in 1899. I believe he died in the late 1920's or early 30's at the Philly vets home.
Obviously I know what these are but I do have a question that perhaps a navy vet can answer. I know there is an organization that is trying to rebuild civil war navy records but I don't know who? I also wonder about whether or not there is a reputable civil war naval museum?
These will be handed down to me and I want to donate them to a museum to be preserved and perhaps allow everyone with an interest to view them.
Any input will be appreciated
