Colorful "squirrel Hunter's Discharge" - Two Documents For Sale


Colored "Squirrel Hunter's Discharge" - Given Out to the Ohio Citizens Who Came to the Defense of their State When Threatened by Confederate Invasion!
In September of 1862, it looked like the Confederate Army might cross the Ohio River and invade Ohio. Farmers, back woodsman, and anyone owning a gun was encouraged by the Governor to come to Cincinnati to stop the Confederate forces from invading. These citizens, named “Squirrel Hunter’s”, came to the rescue… but the threat never materialized. For their patriotic spirit, Governor Tod, had a special discharge printed up and given to each of the men who volunteered. Our example is in good condition, having a number of age spots and one corner fold... but overall would look great in an oak period frame. The discharge is made out to Eli Morton. Along with the discharge, is an example of the letter that was sent out by Governor David Tod, which quoted the Resolution passed by the Ohio Senate and House of Representatives. This letter is made out to a Mr. John W. White of Highland County, Ohio… so it does not match the discharge but it is a document that you just never see!
We have not seen any “Squirrel Hunter’s Discharge” for sale for quite awhile. We saw one several years ago at a Civil War show for $450 and it did not have the Resolution letter. Our pair for much less…
