Revolutionary War Pensions – Fold3

This collection is currently free with 99% of the records indexed . . .

The records in this collection include entire pension files for soldiers and sailors who served in the Revolutionary War. Unlike selected records, which were typically chosen subjectively for genealogical content, these records reveal more details about each veteran’s history and service, as well as more information about his family, state of health, and life after the war.
