With the exception of certain limited series, the Civil War and Spanish American War pension applications are filed together. These records consist of approved and disapproved pension applications based on service chiefly in these two wars filed between 1861 and 1934, and covering both Army and Navy service after 1910. Pension applications of widows and dependents consist of approved and disapproved applications. Naval files consist of approved and disapproved pension applications of Navy veterans submitted between the years 1861 and 1910. Case files of pension applications of widows and dependents consist of approved and disapproved claims. There are microfilm indexes (2,811 rolls) to most of these case files, and a card index of names or remarried widows.
