The following is a list of men who fought in the Civil War and were members of the GAR, who had lived or died in Butte, Montana. Many of these men came to Butte after the end of the war in order to obtain jobs in the mining industry. This information was gathered from lists of GAR members obtained from the Butte-Silver Bow Archives, cemetery lists, death certificates, military records, Ancestry.com, FamilySearch.org, Newspapers.com, and local newspaper articles. I've tried to ascertain the facts the best I could with the information I found.
