Ask for Civil War Form 80 [get several]
Fill it out, send it back, with payment and then sit back and wait
for 4-5 months. Remember, you are dealing with volunteers.

Tell them what you want. Cost is just a bit higher than NARA but the
turnaround time is faster [usually 1 week or less] and they guarantee
you get all the information requested.
