Musicians of the 8th CT Volunteers

Welcome to my project of researching the musicians from the 8th CT. Although it's not much better than a list of names right now, I hope to provide more detailed histories for each soldier, information about Union musicians in general, and anything else I may find along the way. I expect my progress to be slow, however, as information is as hard to find as my spare time.

Click on any of the last names below to see the information I've found for that person.
