The Heritage Library has spent years compiling hospital rolls, cemetery records, Town of Mitchelville citizens' lists, Union Soldiers and US Colored Troops files to identify almost 3000 people who lived and died on Hilton Head Island during the Civil War years.

The files will be open to the public until April 30, 2015.
