Two corps of the Union Army were called VII Corps during the American Civil War.

VII Corps (Department of Virginia)

*Henry Morris Naglee 16-20 July 1863
*George W. Getty 20 July-1 August 1863

VII Corps (Department of Arkansas)

After the original VII Corps was deactivated in the summer of 1863, a second VII Corps was formed from troops in the Department of Arkansas. Most of its active service occurred during Steele's Arkansas Expedition. Commanders were:

*Frederick Steele 6 January 1864-22 December 1864
