FREE WEBINAR Soldier’s Homes (1865-1930) Caring for our veterans presented by Rick Sayre, CG, CGL, FUGA, Wednesday, November 13th, 8:00 pm Eastern / 7:00 pm Central / 6:00 pm Mountain / 5:00 pm Pacific. “The National Home for Volunteer Soldiers, was established by an act of Congress in 1865. The purpose of the home system (initially called the National Asylum) was to provide for the care of the large number of wounded and disabled veterans from the Civil War. Records of kinship and other treasures abound in these records—over 400,000 records of these veterans are online free of charge. The home from its inception was intended to be more like a planned community of today, than a simple home and hospital. Extensive amenities and vocational training were provided. The largest branch and showpiece of the system was the Central Branch at Dayton, Ohio, Eventually growing to 11 homes or branches spread across the country, they are today Veteran’s Administration hospitals. Additionally, state and Confederate homes were established. We will also discuss strategies for finding these records.”
