Civil War Discharge Papers Were In Same Box As Item 121140939348:
Here for sale is a Civil War discharge papers and picture of the soldier at 75 or 80 years old. These papers and picture came in the same shoebox as the tin type picture ( Item # 121140939348 ). I did not list these with the tin type because I can not say for certain that these items and the tin type are the same person. This discharge is for a Private of Captain C. V. Bridges Company D First Regiment of Wisconsin Heavy Artillery Volunteers who was enrolled on the 21st day of September 1863 to serve three years or during the war is here by discharged from the service of the United States this 18th day of August 1865 at Washington D.C.. Said (name of person) was born in Knox County in the state of Ohio is 18 years of age 5' 7 1/2" high light complexion blue eyes light hair and by occupation when enrolled a Farmer. These discharge papers were in the envelope shown along with a picture of a soldier in uniform at about 75 to 80 years of age. The picture is acutally a postcard and it has the same name, company and artillery as the discharge papers. Again, I did not list them together because I can not absolutely say they are the same person, but now I assume they are. I tried to revise my listing of the tin type and add these items with it but was unable to do so because the item already has offers on it. Buyer to pay $3.00 for shipping and handling. Thanks for looking and good luck offerding.
