I find an ancestor listed at Family Search with this:

Name:    Nimrod Long
Document Type:    Citizen
Document Number:    81
Affiliate Publication Title:    Confederate Papers Relating to Citizens or Business Firms
Affiliate Publication Number:    M346
Affiliate Film Number:    598
"United States Civil War Confederate Papers of Citizens or Businesses, 1861-1865," database, FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:VW1S-2H3 : 4 December 2014), Nimrod Long, 1861-1865; from "Confederate Papers Relating to Citizens or Business Firms, 1861-1865,"

What is ╩╗Confederate Papers╩╗? Does it indicate he was a Confederate Soldier? In another citation he is Iowa Infantry - I need to learn about that, right?

The papers reproduced in this publication were created or received by the Confederate War and Treasury departments. Most are alphabetized vouchers that came into the custody of the US War Department after the Civil War. After being assembled in 1891-92, they were used to facilitate post-war claims cases filed by Southern citizens. The vouchers show goods furnished or services rendered by private citizens and firms to the Confederate government, establishing the disloyalty of Southern claimants.
