Question:

Can you explain where I can find a Civil War pension file that is reported to be at the VA?

Answer:

The pension application file with a "C" or an "XC"is generally at the Department of Veterans Affairs. ToTo obtain a copy you need to write a letter to the VA Freedom of Information Officers.  To obtain instructions go to www.va.gov/foia/.  You will need to be willing to pay for the fees associated with copying the file.  Send your request to: FOIA/Privacy Act Officer, Veterans Benefits Administration (20M33), Department of Veterans Affairs, 810 Vermont Avenue, NW, Washington, D.C. 20420.
