ABSTRACT
In 1778, it was enacted by the U.S. Continental Congress that all commissioned officers shall, after the conclusion of the Revolutionary War, be entitled to receive annually, for the term of 7 years, half of the present pay of such officers. Also, non-commissioned officers shall be entitled to receive the further reward of $80 at the end of the war. There was apparently no similar grant to veterans of Spanish war. In some cases the amount paid to various states of the U.S., as adjusted claims against the federal government, were repaid to soldiers by these states.
