Why was one widow of a Union veteran eligible for a Civil War pension and another widow not? Why would someone with a Civil War pension suddenly lose it? And why is there so much seemingly identical paperwork in some of the pension files? Join presenter Laura Congleton for a closer look at Civil War pensions, as she walks you through the application process and the changing pension laws to help put the pension documents into better perspective.
