3rdthawkins: well, I was reading on Ancestry.com, people were discussing how long it takes NY to respond to a request like BC or DC, some people get theirs 4 months later, they are very strict, and require a lot of information

daviss: I am still curious about how many rec'd a pension khathu, does he say at all
rcs: He is against the "myth " of Black confederates and says if you have evidence -- show it
daviss: I have several Harrison County DC's that say pensioners and I am curious to know from where two are old enough to have served but I cant find them in USCT
Ingrid_Doweary: What state did they serve or work in, Daviss?
3rdthawkins: so the searching begins daviss
Khathu: i haven't read all of his post
daviss: Texas Harrison County which was a Confed strong hold I began the search yrs ago 3rd lol
3rdthawkins: oh, ok
Ingrid_Doweary: You will have to research the Texas state archives for the pensions applied for and received from Texas, Daviss
daviss: been there done that ingrid but no luck
Ingrid_Doweary: Since the pension records will be most likely under Confederate government records.
daviss: ok thx ingrid
Ingrid_Doweary: In fact, you may want to look into the Richmond, Va confederacy records, since Richmond was one of three confederate capitols.
daviss: I forgot what narrative I read khathu but there is one person who resided in Harrison County stated that he signed up with the Confed army but by the time he got to La the war was over
Khathu: he has linked a video by historian Bruce Levine
daviss: did I say hello rcs
Khathu: the video is really good go to the bottom of the page to view the video also check out the books
ProfDru: gotta run
daviss: bye lol everyone reading blog lol
Khathu: lol or listening to the video
AYWalton: No I was reading something else. You know how I am multi-tasking.
Ingrid_Doweary: I spent about six hours at the National Archives in DC yesterday and of course learned something new.
AYWalton: oh wonderful, Ingrid.
Khathu: what was that
AYWalton: what did you learn? hello there, deannie!
daviss: 'wb deannie
AYWalton: hope all is well, in Chicago.
Ingrid_Doweary: Since this is women's history month, it was timely to learn of a Union Civil war surgeon named, Dr. Mary Edwards Walker. wb Deannie.
AYWalton: sounds interesting.
deannie: Everything is good here...how about you
AYWalton: was just reading about her, Ingrid----wow she was a character!
Ingrid_Doweary: She was captured by the Confederates, imprisoned in Richmond,Virginia released in a prisoner exchange for a confederate doctor and was a recipient of the congressional medal of honor.
AYWalton: she was quite a character!
Ingrid_Doweary: Yes it seems that she was. Her honor was revoked on technicality but restored posthumously by Pres. Carter in 1977.
3rdthawkins: Blake Griffin!
AYWalton: but she never relinquished her medal. she wore it till her death!
Khathu: He has a good book list
