Nice! I would highly recommend doing this. I was able to use fold3 to find not only Confederate service records but also a quartermaster receipt signed by my Great Great Grandfather who was a carpenter and providing coffins to the CSA. Also amnesty proclamations as well as a letter requesting amnesty to President Johnson requesting his amnesty because he was a CSA postmaster starting January 1864. It’s well worth the effort. Consider misspellings of names when doing searches.
