  • Revolutionary War Pensions
  • Revolutionary War Service Records
  • Revolutionary War Rolls
  • Final Payment Index for Military Pensions, 1818-1864

When you click to view a record image, you’ll be prompted to start a free basic membership (or log in if you already have one). Start searching Fold3’s Revolutionary War Collection here.
