Posted By Dennis On In America,Military | No Comments

This collection references specific pension records freely available through different project websites online. The pension law governing claims based on death or disability from military service was passed on 14 July 1862. Later pension laws were based on length of service and disability not necessarily incurred in the service. Beginning in 1892 women who were employed as nurses by the government were also eligible for pensions.
