American Civil War Soldiers

FIRST NEW YORK DRAGOONS

This photo was the property of my great grandfather Ransom Haight before it came to me.   He was in the First New York Dragoons Co. I. during the Civil War.   This picture is now the first of many in the book, ‘Civil War History and Roster of the First New York Dragoons’ by Deanna Bedgood.  Hopefully some or dare I say all of these soldiers will be identified.

In addition, there is an ongoing descendant project in progress to trace the linage of all the dragoons.  A Certificate is awarded to participants.  You can find the complete roster in the book.   To get the worksheet go to the website of the First New York Dragoons
