Over 500,000 men (and women), approximately one-fifth of the states male population served in the Civil War in some 300 different organizations. Of this number, some 57,000 sacrificed with their lives through combat and/or disease.

While there were no battles or skirmishes fought on New York State soil during the Civil War, the contributions made by Central New Yorkers (in terms of lives lost or changed or in the production of material goods necessary for the war effort) had a major impact in determining the outcome of the "war between the states."

To find out about some of the unique contribution made by Central New Yorkers, select from the index listing on the left.
