Conducted in 1890, this census lists Civil War veterans who served for the Union, as well as veterans' widows.
The records for states at the end of the alphabet--Kentucky through Wyoming--still exist, but the records for Alabama to Kansas do not. Some records include information gathered from those who served in Navy Yards or on US Naval Vessels.
