"Last Civil War Pensioner"
"Last Civil War Pensioner"
Imagine, someone still getting a government pension for Civil War service, more than 150 years after the last shot was fired. You don't have to imagine it, anymore.

Irene Triplett (January 9, 1930 – May 31, 2020) was the last recipient of an American Civil War pension. Her father fought for both the Confederacy and later the Union in the war.

Filmed in 2016.  Her Dad was 84 when she was born.  She was 84 at filming.

What's your reaction?
