After the Civil War ended the problem of disabled Confederate soldiers and Confederate widows came before the Virginia Legislature several times. It was up to each Southern state to take care of their own soldiers by providing a pension plan for them, if they so chose. In 1888 the Legislature approved the payment of pensions of widows of soldiers killed in action or who died in service and those who were severly maimed while wearing the gray.
In 1900, as the veteran population aged, some restrictions were lifted. In 1902 requirements were further eased. The procedure followed was that the veteran or widow filled out an application for a pension. This pension was then presented to a local pension board for review. If this board approved the pension then it was sent to the Auditor of Public Accounts for payment. The pension applications were not kept at the county level. The Auditor of Public Accounts published a list annually, by county, of the recipients of these Confederate pensions.
The following is a list for Caroline County for the year 1909.
