The web site consists of two indexes (by Last Name and Town) of Grand Army of the Republic comrades whose deaths were listed in the South Dakota G.A.R. Annual Journals from 1884 to 1937.

Some death entries provided more information than others. Almost 1,300 veterans are listed in the index. This is not meant to be a complete list of Civil War Veterans who died in South Dakota.

Fields found within the database include first and last name, Post name, number and town, death date and place, the veterans regiment, rank and company, the journal year and page number in which the entry was found and any special notes or remarks on the deceased.

Bound copies of the South Dakota Grand Army of the Republic Annual Journals are found in the South Dakota State Archives collections in boxes 3378B and 3379A.
