We are a research group dedicated to bringing to light, the history
of New York's famous Civil War regiment, the 62d NYSV "Anderson Zouaves."
This site represents
almost 20 years of research conducted by our members and other Australian and US researchers and which has crucially involved
information provided to our group by family members of veterans and other interested individuals. Unlike many American Civil
War regiments, the 62d NYSV does not have a known existent regimental history. Much of what we present to you on this site
are the fragments of this history, drawn together from many and disperate sources.
strived to attribute our sources as fully as we can, where we have failed to attribute correctly, please take the time to
inform us. If you use any information from this website, we would ask that you attribute our group as your source. We have
obtained permissions from various organisations and individuals to display images or to reproduce copy, please respect these
organisations and individuals and seek their permission also.
I would take the opportunity to
acknowledge the immense amount of work undertaken by Mr. John Tierney in researching the 62d NYSV. Much of his work is the
basis for our current understanding of this regiment. I would also like to acknowledge the pioneering work of Mr. Bill Lincoln,
whose early work on the 62d NYSV, uncovered many of the photographs of veterans displayed on this website.
