Thanks to Jim Schmidt for bringing this link to Andy Hall's fine blog to my attention on facebook.
Andy shared this link to a story about some new pension records available online, this time for Kentucky Confederates. See this further link to the Department of Confederate Pensions.
This could be a very nice tool and resource for researchers and I am glad to see Kentucky provide such a tool. Hopefully more Civil War era information will become available during the sesquicentennial and years beyond
