Applications for Admission of Female  Relatives of Veterans
 1925 - 1955

The South Carolina Confederate Home, opened on Confederate Memorial Day, May 10, 1909.  The home was located near the State Hospital for the Insane on Bellevue Place, a property formerly owned by Col. William Wallace and now the corner of Confederate Avenue and Bull Street in Columbia.  Initially its governing commission consisted of five members, three of whom had to be ex-Confederate soldiers or sailors, appointed by the governor.  Two veterans from each county recommended by the County Pension Board were to be admitted.  If such recommendations failed to be made, then the commission could fill the vacancy from the same or another county.

In 1921, four members of the United Daughters of the Confederacy to the commissionwere added. In 1925 indigent widows and wives were made eligible for admission whenever there were few enough veterans in the home to allow one widow or wife from each county.  "Sisters of the full blood" were added in 1929, daughters in 1935, and nieces in 1943.  The last veteran in the home died in 1944.  Twenty-nine elderly women were transferred to the custody of the State Department of Public Welfare when the home closed in 1957.  B. B. Rosenburg, Living Monuments: Confederate Soldiers' Homes in the New South (Chapel Hill and London: The University of North Carolina Press, 1993) provides additional information about the home.

Series 128005 (South Carolina Archives) consists of the applications of female relatives of veterans to the South Carolina Confederate Home.  Information usually includes the name of the applicant, her date of birth, the dates of application and of admission, and the relationship to a Confederate soldier with information about that soldier's service.  Living relatives of the applicant and their addresses are also listed.  Letters of support are frequently present.  Some rejected applications are also included in the series.  Many applications have notations as to discharge or death.
