These names appear to be those of the laborers who quarried the stone, crafted the capping coping stones and constructed the wall. Many of the same names are found in the Sharpsburg area today.

Confederate Pension Records - Confederate pensions were not authorized or paid by the United States and NARA does not maintain them. Fourteen of the Confederate States issued pensions to confederate veterans, their widows, and/or surviving children. The states were Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, and Virginia.

Alabama

Alabama began granting pensions to those veterans who had lost arms or legs in 1867. In 1886 they granted pensions to Confederate widows and in 1891 the law was amended to include indigent veterans or their widows.

  • Alabama Civil War Service Cards File. This database is being created from an 8 x 5 card file maintained by the Alabama Department of Archives and History from the early 1900s until 1982. As staff came across information related to Alabama individuals during the American Civil War a card was created. Information on individuals exempted from military service or who served in the militia or home guard is included. If new information was discovered from another source, another card was created. Multiple cards for an individual often exist. Sources include muster rolls, governors' correspondence, veterans' censuses, manuscript collections, newspapers and pension records. Names, places and events are often inconsistently spelled. This card file is in no way inclusive. Every card has empty fields. Because much of the documentation relating to the Army of Tennessee was lost, soldiers that served in that army tend to be poorly documented. The cards are arranged alphabetically by last name; however, they are closed and microfilm is available.

  • North Carolina, Confederate Soldiers and Widows Pension Applications, 1885-1953. Pensions were provided for Confederate veterans who were residents of North Carolina and who had lost a leg, eye, or arm, or who were incapacitated for manual labor while in the service of the Confederate States during the Civil War. Widows of soldiers who were killed in service were entitled to the same benefits as long as they did not remarry. Any person, however, who owned property with a tax value of $500.00 or received a salary of $300.00 per year from the nation, state, or county was not eligible. The law was amended to include widows of soldiers who had died of disease while in service. In 1901, a new pension law was passed, in which, “Every person who has been for twelve months immediately preceding his or her application for pension bona fide resident of the State, and who is incapacitated for manual labor and was a soldier or a sailor in the service of the State of North Carolina or of the Confederate States of America, during the war between the States (provided, said widow was married to said soldier or sailor before the first day of April, 1865)" was entitled to a pension. No person holding a national, state, or county office for which he received $300.00 annually, no person with property valued at $500.00 or more, or no person receiving aid under laws for relief of totally blind and maimed was eligible (inmates of the Soldiers' Home, recipients of pensions from other states, and deserters were excluded from benefits under the pension acts, although inmates of the Soldiers' Home were granted quarterly allowances of $1.50 in 1909 -- increased to $3.00 quarterly in 1913).

Oklahoma & Indian Territory

Oklahoma approved pensions for Confederate veterans and widows in 1915. During the era of the Civil War, most of the area of present Oklahoma was under the control of the Five Civilized Tribes, i.e, the Choctaw, Cherokee, Chickasaw, Creek, and Seminole Nations. The region was generally described as "Indian Territory," but that term did not become part of official government records until 1972. Although Indian Territory never officially joined the Confederacy, all five of the slaveholding Nations supported the southern cause and regiments of troops were supplied by the Nations to the Confederate Army. After the Civil War, the U.S. Government voided the treaties with the Five Civilized Tribes, wrote new ones, and began a process of allotments of land to individual tribe members. After various acts involving the sale of lands in the Indian Territory, in 1890 the area was divided into Indian Territory and Oklahoma Territory. The two territories were joined in 1907 to become the state of Oklahoma. One of the early acts of the new state was to provide pensions to surviving Confederate soldiers of the Civil War living in Oklahoma. (OHS = Oklahoma Historical Society in Oklahoma City, OK)
