Does anyone know of a way I can create a report that is based on the info in FTM that will pull out only those ancestors that have a record for serving in the Civil War?

That would be really handy. The only reports I can find in FTM are those to do with lineage, relationships, places, etc.

I would like to suggest this be an enhancement in future upgrades to 2012.

You can set up a filter to select only those people who were in the Civil War as long as you are consistent with your facts and have either a Custom Fact e.g. "Civil War" or have used the Military Fact with date ranges during the civil war.

Use this selection criteria in a Custom report, selecting those facts you want in the report.

This technique has been available for at least the last 2 releases of FTM.
