Ancestry Civil War Pension Index contents question #usa

David Brostoff

I have a relative who was born in 1879 and is documented to have served in the Spanish-American War.

On Ancestry, one of the records for him has his correct service information but is found in the "U.S., Civil War Pension Index: General Index to Pension Files, 1861-1934."

Anyone know why the record would be in a Civil War index instead of a Spanish-American War one?

Thank you,

David Brostoff
