The USGenWeb Archives is embarking on the USGenWeb Archives Pension Project. This project will endeavor to provide actual transcriptions of Pension related materials for all Wars prior to 1900. Transcripts, extracts and abstracts will be accepted and
files will be placed in the USGenWeb Archives directory of the State and
County of principal residence of the Pensioner.
Below is a list of Wars that are being considered for this project, and the USGenWeb Archive Volunteer who will be coordinating the Pension collection effort for each of the Wars.
We are looking for volunteers who will
coordinate each state's Civil War Pension records. If you would like to
volunteer, please email
