After the War Between the States, many official records of the Confederate Army and its hospitals were lost or deliberately destroyed. The War Department in Washington took possession of some records, and other surviving records were collected by various state archives. Between 1903 and 1927, the National Archives and Records Administration set out to collect and compile information on each soldier who served in the Confederate Army, by gleaning information from the surviving records and transcribing each bit of information from each record to a card. The cards for each soldier were collected, and became his "Military Service Record."
