Confederate service and pension files are not available at the National Archives.
Confederate service records have been digitized and are available on Fold3.com. It is a subscription site but there are a variety of legal ways to access it for free as described on our blog HERE. Some of the records are also available for free on the National Archives’ own web site HERE.
Confederate pension records are maintained by the individual southern states as described on our blog HERE. A list of sites where you can find Confederate pension records (itemized by state) can be found HERE.
