Union Enlistment by Year


I am looking for a quality source that has the number of men who enlisted in the Union Army for each year of the war. Alternately, it could note the percentage of men who enlisted per year. I have found a figure of 421,000 for 1862 but no statistics for other years

Thanks in advance,

Robert Gudmestad
