The rosters on this page were transcribed by Steven Butler from microfilmed copies of the original muster rolls, which are housed in the National Archives in Washington, D.C. These rolls, along with a complete list of the more than 2,000 men who served from Alabama during the Mexican War can also be found in the book, Alabama Volunteers in the Mexican War. The Eutaw Ranger rolls alone are also included in The Eutaw Rangers in the War with Mexico: The Mexican War Journal & Letters of Capt. Sydenham Moore and the Mexican War Journal of Pvt. Stephen F. Nunnalee. Both are publications of The Descendants of Mexican War Veterans.
