Civil War Document – Discharge Papers, June 14, 1865 Of Presley Thomas For Sale
Up for sale is the discharge papers of Presley Thomas who
was a private. His Captain was George W. (Unable to make out last name due to
hand writing). Presley Thomas was enlisted in the 176 Regiment of Ohio’s
Infantry and volunteered to enlist on September 5, 1864. This is a wonderful
piece of history and would be a great addition to any Civil War collection. It
would be a fantastic start to a new collection!
Presley Thomas appears to have volunteered for a one year
service with the United States army and was discharged shortly after the war
ended. He was discharged on June 14, 1865. The document not only shows his rank
and company, but his physical description as well.
The discharge document is in fair condition. The front of
the document is very legible and the print is very vivid. Some of the handwriting
is hard to determine, but it’s very vivid. The front and the back are yellowing
due to age, but is in reasonable shape with no tears or tape. It is fairly
delicate. The pencil on the back of the page is quite faded, but some of it is
Also included in the lot is an envelope, we are unsure if
this is the envelope the discharge papers were sent in or not. It seems the
address is accurate. It was sent to a Mrs. Margaret Goet in Ashtabula Ohio.
Presley Thomas was also from Ohio, so it’s reasonable to assume they do match.
The envelope is also in delicate condition but the print on the envelope is
also quite vivid. There is also half of a 3 cent stamp.
The final item in the lot is what looks like a matte
backing. It’s grey with a design around the page and “The Confederate” written
on the top. This is in nice condition and would be great to add some
confederate documents too.
