Southern Claims Collection

About the Collection: In the 1870s, Southerners claimed compensation from the U.S. government for items used by the Union Army, ranging from corn and horses to trees and church buildings. Often these documents include testimonies containing rich family information including names, dates, places and events.

Sample Images: This claim is a fascinating personal history for Norvell M. Robinson. The first image lists the items he claimed were taken by the Union Army. The other images are a testimonial account of what happened during the battle at that time.
