Was Great-Grandma's Second Husband A Civil War Veteran?

If your female ancestor married again after her husband's death and that second husband was a Civil War veteran, your female ancestor may have qualified for a pension based upon that husband's service.

And even if you don't descend from the second husband, there may be good information in that pension application. Great-grandma may indicate where and when the first marriage took place and how that marriage ended.
