Some other web-sites that might be of interest.

Sites Related to the 13th Mass:

Most of these links are older, placed here when I started this project in 2008.  I have deleted some that were defunct inlcuding my Yahoo Group for 13th MA Descendants. There are still some good sites listed here, like the 13th MA Roster, Civil War Richmond, the Woburn Library, the National Parks, Etc.  And in more recent years I have been posting articles at Friends of Cedar Mountain Battlefield, where I also give tours.

I would like to promote the Descendants of the 88th PA Vols, who do excellent work, but they don't have a regular website.  They are on facebook however.

Here's where I post articles about my research:  13th Mass Blog

Brett Schulte is compileing information about regimental actions at his excellent compilation site "The Siege of Petersburg on-line."  I have sent him several materials about the 13th Mass at Petersburg for the site.  As it will be a long while before I reach that point in my detail history, you can visit Brett's site and see more about the 13th Mass.

Woburn Public Library has a digital exhibit posted with photographs of soldiers from the town that served in the Civil War. Two soldiers from the '13th Mass' are included.

Local libraries, particularly in towns that furnished a Civil War rifle company or other organization, are good resources to find information about a unit.  For Instance, the libraries & Historical Societies in Westborough, Mass., Marlborough, Mass. & Stoneham, Mass. have information on the rifle companies & men that enlisted from those towns many in the 13th Mass .  Some have period newspapers available on microfilm.  If you are close to such a library it is a great resource.  Westborough Library;     Marlborough Library;    Marlborough Historical SocietyStoneham Historical Society.

Other Regiments:

Speaking of Civil War Units I have links to some other sites for Massachusetts regiments.  Susan Harnwell runs an excellent site on the 15th Mass.  She gave me some advice on getting this site off the ground.  Check out her roster and the incredibly detailed information it contains.  I plan to implement a similar roster here, at some future time. 15th Mass.

Another unit on-line is the 28th Mass.  Harvard educated private John B. Noyes, Co. B, 13th Mass., was commissioned 2d Lt. in this Irish Regiment in April 1863.  At one point during Grant's Overland Campaign Captain Noyes became the commanding officer of the unit, all other officers being killed or wounded in action.  The site contains a good history of the unit which never had an official history written.  28th Mass.
