Usage Tips

This collection is identified as National Archives Microfilm Publication T-289. A detailed description is available at NARA's Archival Research Catalog (ARC).

"The information provided here is virtually the same as that in the General Index to Pension Files, 1861-1934, T288. Unlike the alphabetical General Index, however, this index groups the applicants according to the units in which they served. The cards are arranged alphabetically by state, thereunder by arm of service (infantry, cavalry, artillery), thereunder numerically by regiment, and there- under alphabetically by veteran's surname"--Military Service Records, p. 263.

"Each card gives the soldier's name, rank, unit, and terms of service; names of relationships of any dependents; the application number; the certificate number; and the state from which the claim was filed"--Military Service Records, p. 263. In addition, some cards also list date and place of death.

"The index cards reproduced on this microfilm publication refer to pension applications of veterans who served in the U.S. Army between 1861 and 1917. The majority of the records pertain to Civil War veterans, but they also include veterans of the Spanish-American War, the Philippine Insurrection, Indian wars, and World War I"--Military Service Records, p. 263.
