pensioner, the cause for which pensioned, the post-office address, the
rate of pension per month and the date of original allowance, as called
for by Senate Resolution of December 8, 1882. (The pensioners were primarily Union veterans from the Civil War and survivors of the War of 1812, but also included other service as well. Confederate veterans were not eligible for federal pensions from Civil War service.)
