The military forces of New York State—the organized militia, the Army and Air National Guard, the New York Guard, and the Naval Militia—have always answered the call to support the state and serve in our nation’s conflicts. The Unit Histories make the history of individual New York units in each major conflict available to the public.

The histories of New York’s Civil War units are the most extensive and complete because that is the strength of our collection. However, we are periodically updating units from other conflicts so please check back often.
