Pitre Men who were

Union Soldiers during the Civil War


The list below is a compilation from a variety of sources.  The “Who Was He?” column is my theory as to the identity of each man.  If you know or have reason to believe an identity is incorrect, please contact me so that this list can be corrected.  If you know of other Pitres who served in the Union Army please contact me so that they can be added.
