U.S. Still Paying Survivor Benefits to Children of Civil War Vets in 2013

The U.S. government is paying billions to war veterans and their families, including monthly payments to the children of Civil War veterans.

Two children of Civil War veterans — one in Tennessee and the other in North Carolina — are each receiving $876 a year. Another 10 are getting benefits, averaging about $5,000 a year, connected to the 1898 Spanish-American War.
