"Lies of a Solider: The True Identity of Harry Coad"

Civil War pension files are treasure troves of information and researchers are always in awe of what they find in them.  This presentation walks the attendees through my research process of unraveling a family mystery which could only be solved by a 300 page pension record.  Through depositions, letters, affidavits, and interviews through the Federal Government the life of Harry Coad was brought to life in the pages.  Ending in a once ina lifetime find.
