Abstract: The Confederate Signal Corps and the Independent Signal Corps are two organizations in the Civil War which are cloaked in general ignorance. In fact, several leading historians on the Civil War confessed their lack of knowledge, or even general knowledge, about the Confederate Signal Corps (the Independent Signal Corps was not mentioned since its existence is generally unknown). For these reasons, the problem of trying to gather the available information on the Confederate Signal Corps and Independent Signal Corps in order to comprehend them in their true perspective was undertaken.
