FACT OF THE DAY: Until this month, the Treasury was still paying a Civil War pension to North Carolina resident Irene Triplett, daughter of Civil War veteran Mose Triplett. Mose fathered Irene in 1930 when he was 84, making her eligible for a lifetime pension of $73.13 per month. Triplett died on Sunday at age 90.
