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 over 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.
We have strived to attribute our sources

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
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.
