Burford, Henry C. and Oklahoma Crossroads

Burford, Henry C. ::

This is the digitized pension card from 1920 belonging to Henry Burford, a Confederate soldier, from Wetumka archived in the Oklahoma Crossroads digital database included in the offerings of the Oklahoma Digital Prarie Page. This is just a small representation of the primary source documents in a collection of Oklahoma archived historical collections beginning in the late 1800's. According to Oklahoma Digial Praire, Oklahoma's fifth legislature passed, in 1915, the Confederate Soldier's Pension Bill to assist disabled and indigent soldiers, sailors, and their widows.
