Confederate Pensions and Records - Pension Office - General Correspondence
Scope and Contents
Letters are primarily concerned with requests for information searches of the pension and service records, and inquiries concerning requirements for admission to the pension roll and other facets of the pension law. Usually both the letter to the Pension Office and a carbon copy of the reply are included, but in some cases only one or the other were found.
