Records of the
Union Military Academy
The Union Military Academy was established to train, educate, and prepare the legions of volunteers seeking to preserve the Union and put down the unjust Rebellion by the southern states. Since its founding UMA has graduated hundreds of the finest officers in the ACWGC. The Academy continues to set a high standard for both it and for those who go through its curriculum. Listed below are those who have entered and graduated from UMA through the years.
Note that the records from 1997 to 2000 are incomplete. Every effort has been made to correctly label each Union member but certain information has been lost over the years.
