Civil War Soldier's and Pension Applications Brought to you by Will Johnson, Professional Genealogist

Arkansas seceded from the Union, but loyalties were divided. Some people in Franklin County owned slaves, most did not. The men of Franklin ended up joining both sides, sometimes brothers fought on opposite sides. In this regard, Arkansas may have been one of the most divided states in the Confederacy.

Civil War pensions were granted to those who fought for the Union and these federal pensions can be obtained from NARA. However not everybody realizes that Arkansas was a state that also granted STATE pensions to those who fought for the Confederacy. These state pensions can be obtained from the Arkansas History Commission.
