Pension Index Card File, alphabetical; of the Veterans Administrative Contact and Administration Services, Admin. Operations Services, 1861-1934; Duff to A-J Duncan (negative film 540,888, some cards very faint); Joseph Duncan to Dunn (positive film 540,889, some cards very dark)
      Cataloged under Civil War, 1861-1865, pensions, indexes; does not say if Confederate or Federal, but probably Federal. Negative film, some cards much too faint or dark to read, some cards blurred or faded, particularly the service unit and the dates of application. Most of the very faint or dark cards were in a slightly different format, with space for years enlisted and discharged which were sometimes filled in. Many of these were for service in later years, although one or two were for service ca 1866.
      Name of soldier, alias, name of dependent widow or minor, service (military unit or units), date of filing, class (invalid or widow or minor or other), Application #, Certificate #, state from which filed (sometimes blank), attorney (sometimes blank, MAD: did not usually copy), remarks. Sometimes the "Invalid" or "Widow" class had an "s" added to it before the application #; occasionally the area for the service information included a circled "S". The minor's name was frequently that of the guardian rather than the minor.
      The military unit was frequently the Company Letter, the Regiment Number, sometimes US Vet Vol Inf. (US Veteran Volunteer Infantry), L.A. (Light Artillery), H.A. (Heavy Artillery), US C Inf (US Colored? Infantry), Cav. (Cavalry), Mil. Guards, V.R.C. (?Volunteer Reserve Corps?), etc. Sometimes there were several service units given.
      Cards appear to be arranged by the last name, first name, middle initial if any, and state (including "US") of service.

      Forward: In offering to the public these "Confederate Reminiscences" my only apology is to place in permanent form, and in the very words of the participants, as far as practicable, the personal experiences of the "men behind the guns," the "boys in the line," ... Many interesting papers, too lengthy for the scope of this work, have been abridged to contain the most important parts. ... While editing the data so kindly sent me, I have entered fully into each skirmish, battle, march and campaign. ...
      George W. Duncan, San Angelo [Tom Green Co.], TX; was born May 18, 1845, near Winchester, [Franklin Co.] TN. Enlisted in the Confederate Army in July, 1862, at Louden [Loudon Co.], TN, as private in Co. D, 17th TN Regiment, Infantry; Gen. Bushrod Johnson's brigade, Cheatham's division, Hardee's corps, Army of TN. Thos. Finch, first Captain, and Newman, first Colonel. Our regiment was sent with Longstreet to attack Burnside at Knoxville, TN; thence to VA where we remained until the close of the war. I was wounded at Beans Station, shot in left arm, between elbow and wrist, but did not break the bone. Was taken prisoner, with the most of my regiment, in front of Petersburg, VA, June 1864. Was first sent to Point Lookout, MD, and then to Elmira, NY, remaining in prison nearly 8 months. Was in the battles of ... I arrived at home the last of April, 1865, with the remainder of Lee's disbanded men, and found everything on my mother's plantation destroyed. Every building gone and most of the fencing, not enough material of the buildings left to build a respectable hencoop; the brick chimneys had been hauled off to their headquarters.
