AGLL (American Genealogy Lending Library):
http://www.cyndislist.com/lib-lending.htm

AGLL is the American Genealogical Lending Library. It is a
private (family owned) company that is a great asset to those trying
to do Genealogy in an area without access to an LDS Family
History Center, and to those who are homebound.

From their catalog: "AGLL was established to provide libraries,
genealogical and historical societies and other institutions with a
low cost and efficient microfilm circulation and sales service."

AGLL publishes a fairly large catalog in 2 volumes (and on disk)
listing all of the microfilm and fiche that you can buy or rent from
them.
Volume I contains the Federal Census Films 1790-1910, and
Soundex Indexes.

Volume II contains Early Military Records, US Ship Passenger
Lists, Federal Mortality Schedules, State Census Records, Vital
Records Collections, Family and County Histories and all other
records in the AGLL collection.

Before AGLL, only LDS Family History Centers had films
circulating for us to use. AGLL made them available to our
Genealogical Libraries. NOW there is also AGLLA (The
American Genealogical Lending Library Association) that "was
established to provide INDIVIDUALS with a low cost and
efficient microfilm sales and circulation service...for use in the
privacy of their homes."

US Army Center for Military History:

http://www.army.mil/cmh-pg/default.htm

The Center of Military History traces its functional lineage to the
Civil War era. An 1864 congressional authorization for the War
Department to collect and publish the military records of the Civil
War resulted in the appearance of 131 volumes of documents and
maps between 1880 and 1901—a collection that remains an
essential source for the study of that great national conflict. In a

published a study (two volumes in six books) of the Union Army's
medical experience, the first official histories of the U.S. Army.
