Looking for a detailed information source on your family's
early American military life? You've found it! Containing indexed page images
originally published between 1792 and 1841, these 12 volumes detail the military
service and pensions of approximately 110,000 individuals.
Usually arranged by state or territory, information given for each pensioner
generally includes rank, regiment, annual allowance, description of service,
date enlisted, date placed on the pension roll, place or residence, nature
of wounds or disability, date of death, and occasional references to family
members, including widows and orphans. In the vast majority of cases,
the pension records identify veterans of the Revolutionary War and the
later frontier wars.
