USCT Civil War Widows Pension Records Tell the Story with Bernice Alexander Bennett will discuss the anatomy of a Civil War Widows Pension file and several examples to illustrate the value of using these records.
Civil War pension records are one of the best sources to trace your family. Once you can identify your Civil War soldier, a widow’s pension application is full of rich content about the marriage of your soldier and proof of military service, complete with the testimony of family, associates, and neighbors.
