Using the Toolbar

Located at the top of each page you will find the Toolbar which allows you to navigate through the site using the following buttons:

  • Home returns you to the Home page from anywhere in the database.
  • Soldiers takes you to a search for all personnel in the database.
  • Regiments takes you to a search for any regiment in the database.
  • Battles opens the search for any battle summary.
  • Analysis directs you to selected charts, graphs, and statistical information on regiments and personnel that highlight the database's capacity for statistical analysis.
  • Bibliography directs you to a list of sources used to compile the database's information.
  • Help opens the Table of Contents for the help file.

The search box on the right of the Toolbar allows you to perform a Quick Search of text, titles, and authors of all works found in the database.

As you explore the database, a breadcrumb trail of links will appear below the main toolbar (for example, Search >> Results >> Full Text). You can use the links in this breadcrumb trail to return to previous steps in your searching or browsing.

Admin Alert: Our Platforms Are Now Updated with HTTPS

This past summer, Alexander Street began supporting HTTPS on its platforms (in addition to HTTP) to strengthen security and privacy of your information.

On January 2, 2018, all Alexander Street platforms will permanently transition from HTTP to HTTPS. Existing HTTP links will redirect to HTTPS when the transition occurs. Organizations that use proxies to access Alexander Street platforms will need to update links and certificates to support HTTPS.

This support article shows how to complete changes in proxy servers and provides answers to common questions. Even if you don't use proxies, you'll want to review and convert links to their HTTPS versions. (Note: Access to your Alexander Street content has not been impacted even if you haven't yet made the switch.)
Links will redirect from HTTP to HTTPS for some time to come, but we encourage you to do this important work today if you haven't already.
