Description

Excerpt from Service Pension: Report of the Committee on Pensions, Together With the Views of a Minority on H. R. 1, an Act Granting a Service Pension to Certain Defined Veterans of the Civil War and the War With Mexico We believe its enactment into law will greatly decrease the requests for the introduction of private pension bills. While the substitute gives increases to each of the pensioners, yet we do not believe such increases are as large and substantial as they should be under all the circumstances. We ask you, in considering this question, to remember the debt this Nation owes to the Union soldier; to remember that of that grand army of brave men who Offered their lives to preserve the Union it is estimated that at least will answer the last roll call this year, and to remember, further, that if anything is going to be done for them, now is the time to do it. We recommend the defeat of the substitute reported by a majority Of the committee and ask for the passage of House bill 1, known as the Sherwood bill.
