How do I go about getting copies of my grandfather and my great grandfathers' discharges? They both fought in the civil war for the Union. My great grandfather,Andrew Colton,Wathena Ks,) served in Co.I, 15th Cavalry Regiment Kansas. My grandfather(Andrew Myron Colton,Wathena Ks.) was in Co G, 44th Missouri volunteer infantry. He was captured in a battle in Tennessee. Do not know which one. According to my grandmother(His wife) he was sent to Andersonville,Ga. prison. Would also like to find where this can be confirmed.
Any help will be much appreciated.
