I am a new member and this is my first post. Is there a reference site that lists Union and Confederate order of battle for the major battles ? I am especially interested in the battle of Lynchburg Virginia. Thank you very much.

Fedreb beat me to it. I visit the Civil War Battles page a lot for OBs. It also gives series, volume, and page number from The War of the Rebellion and the Official Records of the Union and Confederate Navies, which I hit Cornell's Making of America site for.

I can give you part of the order of battle.

Lynchburg

MG Jubal A. Early, II Corp.
     BG John B. Gordon
    Pegram's Brigade

    Col John S. Hoffman
   
    13th Virginia
    31st Virginia
    49th Virginia
    52nd Virginia
    58th Virginia

Hoffman didn't make the trip due to a spider bite.
I got this from the book "52nd Virginia Infantry".

Early and the 2nd Corp left Lynchburg went back down through the Shenandoah Valley to make their approach on Washington DC.

You can search for any battle like thus in your search engine

"Manassas order of Battle" example.

Wikipedia has them with good summaries of the battles. Reference links are included to do more research.
