Dear Ms. Lovins,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
The majority of Civil War pension files in the Records of the Department of Veterans Affairs (Record Group 15) are in the custody of the National Archives at Washington, DC - Textual Reference (RDT1). There are also 3 record series (XC files) in Record Group 15 at the National Archives at St. Louis (RL-SL) that include claims files relating to Civil War Veterans. These records were transferred to the National Archives in 1952 and 1955 from the VA. Please email both RDT1 at firstname.lastname@example.org and RL-SL at email@example.com with full details about the file you are seeking. When you email RDT1 and RL-SL, please attach the following image that Mr. Schneider located for you and which we are also attaching to the end of our reply. This is the pension index card and the staff should be able to use this information to locate the file.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and pursuant to guidance received from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), NARA has adjusted its normal operations to balance the need of completing its mission-critical work while also adhering to the recommended social distancing for the safety of NARA staff. As a result of this re-prioritization of activities, you may experience a delay in receiving an initial acknowledgement as well as a substantive response to your reference request from RDT1 and RL-SL. We apologize for this inconvenience and appreciate your understanding and patience.
We hope this is helpful. Best of luck with your research!
