Civil War Pension Files

As we continue to play catchup, we’ll be using examples from several Civil War pension files I’ve obtained over the past several years. Complete pension files are often helpful when the veteran (or his widow if she survived him) was born in a state that did not keep vital records during the time of the birth.

There are other reasons for getting these records, but for those born in locations where there are no vital records, they are particularly helpful.
