I found this pretty interesting.

Two children of American Civil War veterans are still receiving pensions for their parents' service - despite the conflict ending almost 150 years ago.

The individuals both receive a pension of $876 per year from Veteran’s Affairs, according to a recent study into the lingering costs of war.

The American Civil War ended on April 12, 1865 with the surrender of the Confederate Army, putting an end to the bloodiest battles ever fought on U.S. soil.
