Civil War record references as recommended by Gary and Jan. If anyone would like to obtain an ancestor's Civil War Pension files, contact Frailphone:  (401) 464-2119, email:

His website is temporarily down, but he is still visiting the archives and copying files for those who want them.  Either call or email Bruce for information regarding how to order and the cost. His price has been at or below the archives and going through him is easy instead of the more cumbersome government system.
