This list was originally published by the US Government Pension Bureau in 1883. Those listed here are some of the first who filed for their pensions.  To request a copy of these pensions, or pensions filed at a later date, you can email The National Archives, and request a Form 80.  Form 80 is the form they ask you to use in order to find a pension or military file on your ancestor.  In the email, send them your name and address and the number of Forms (Form 80) that you would like them to send to you.  You should receive them in the mail within a week.
