Biographical/Historical Note

On April 1, 1891, with the passage of Act 91, Arkansas became one of the first southern states to grant annual pensions to Ex-confederate servicemen and their widows. C.S.A service pensions were provided to a veteran or his widow from the state they currently lived rather than the state from which he served. Almost 50,000 Arkansas received pensions for Civil War service under this program from 1891 until the creation of the State Department of Public Welfare in 1939. After that date pensions were administered by that agency. Act 91 created a State Pension Board and seventy-five local pension boards, one in each county. These boards oversaw the granting of all pensions. Information in this index is abstracted from the records created by the State Pension Board.They date from 1891 to 1936 and were kept by the State Auditor. The original index was made in 1935-1936 by the Works Progress Administration. All of these records are now at the Arkansas State Archives.
