 Arkansas, USA, Register der Pensionen der Südstaatenarmee, 1891-1935

Diese digitale Datenbank der Geschichtskommission von Arkansas extrahiert Details der Veteranen und Witwen aus dem Register der Pensionen der Südstaatenarmee von Arkansas für die Jahre 1891-1939.

This digital database from the Arkansas History Commission (AHC) extracts details on Confederate veterans and widows from Arkansas Confederate pension records from the years 1891–1939.

Unlike former Union troops, Confederate veterans could not look to the federal government for pensions, whether for disability, age, or service. Most of the former Confederate states eventually passed legislation to provide pensions to veterans residing in their states. Arkansas began providing grants to Confederate veterans in 1891. Widows and mothers of veterans became eligible in 1915.

This database contains information extracted from records collected by the Arkansas State Pensions Board and includes the following details:

  • name of veteran
  • application number
  • name of widow
  • company
  • regiment
  • state served from
  • division
  • county where received pension
  • veteran's death date
  • widow's death date
  • application year (veteran)
  • comments (approved, widow application date, etc.)
