US military cemetery and related records linked at Ancestry.com

I don't normally cover US records, except when a large collection come online. This is an exception as Ancestry have added major military databases. I took a quick look,

There is a collection of images of headstones at major US Military Cemeteries. It's interesting to be able to find them, although the ones I looked at were not especially informative.

There is also a collection of records related to the US Civil War. Some linked to original records; others, like the database of U.S., Confederate Soldiers Compiled Service Records, 1861-1865, linked to  images at footnote.com, a company now owned by Ancestry.com. but which aside from a free trial period requires an additional subscription.

Here is the list of new additions.
