Re: Help Reading Civil War Pension Card

Hi Ron,

Complete "Civil War and Later Veterans Pension.This publication contains index cards for pension applications of veterans who served in the U.S. Army between 1861 and 1917, including wars other than the Civil War. Records are sorted by units within regiments from each state in the Union. Find a soldier by searching on his name or browse by regiment. Learn about his term of service, and use the information to request his pension record. Unique to this series of records are death dates and locations for many of the veterans who died after the war."

58% Complete... "Civil War "Widows' Pensions" The files are grouped under the soldier's name, but the widow's name and names of minor children are listed on the first page within the pension file. A pensioner's name (typically the widow's) is searchable, often giving her maiden name as well. Case files include where and when a man served, details of his service, his life before the war, and his family, including information about his widow, children, and sometimes his parents. These files are unfilmed textual records"
