The Kentucky Department for Libraries and Archives have them all available online. . State archivist Barbara Teague says the pension program was open to indigent veterans and their widows.</p><p>&ldquo;They had to prove that they had less than $300 income per year and own less than $2,500 worth of property. So you had to prove that you really didn&rsquo;t have any money and you needed this pension, which may have been $15 to $25 a month.&rdquo;</p> Wed, 29 Feb 2012 21:47:21 +0000 Brenna Angel (KPR) 17092 at http://wkms.org Kentucky Confederate Records are Digitized
