United States Civil War and Later Pension Index, 1861-1917
Each card gives the soldier's name, the application number, the certificate number and the regiment in which the soldier served. In some cases, the soldier's rank, terms of service, date of death and place of death are given. The index cards refer to pension applications of veterans who served in the U.S. Army between 1861 and 1917. The majority of the records pertain to Civil War veterans.
