Civil War Service Record of Molias Hardy
The Confederate Service Records held in the National Archives consist of a series of cards which were created years after the war from the original Confederate records. The cards reflect periodic muster rolls, lists of deaths, POW lists, etc. which from the soldier's units. A card was filled out for each time an individual soldier's name appeared on one of the lists. The records are incomplete, sometimes inaccurate, and often hard to read. However they do contain a wealth of valuable information on many Confederate soldiers.
The following are descriptions of the cards comprising Molias Hardy's Civil War Record. Some show "N. Hardy, some "M. Hardy". Click on the card number to see a scanned image of the card.
