17 images

Thomas D. Via changed sides in the American Civil War in order, simply, to survive.

Attached are the 17 pages that make up his Federal pension file. His pension was initially rejected, as the pension board saw that he had served as a Private in the Confederacy, but he was able to prove that he fought for the North.

Also included is a marriage certificate for Thomas's marriage, late in life, to Nancy Detamore.
