VA REFUSES TO ISSUE HEADSTONES FOR BLACKS WHO SERVED WITH CSA
The VA is refusing to issue veterans headstones to blacks who served with the Confederate Army of Tennessee on grounds that the men were slaves and therefore may not be properly considered veterans. The VA maintains its position in spite of the fact that each of these 11 men in question applied for and received a Tennessee soldier’s pension, the records of which accompanied applications for the headstones. These records included Regiment, Compnay and type of service.
