Civil War Document Detailing Clothing Allowances to George Fisher of Company D, 190th Pennsylvania
Civil War document detailing the clothing issued to George Fisher of Company D of the 190th Pennsylvania Regiment.
The document, too large for one scan, is approximately 15-1/2" by 10-1/4". George signed for each distribution, with a witness for each. Witnesses:
A. J. Demming [multiple] - Andrew J. Demming (1835-1909) - paroled prisoner
The document was signed at the bottom by William B. Duddy, Lieutenant. He was William B. Duddy (abt 1839-1913).
According to this form, George mustered in this Company at Bristoe, Virginia, on 1 February 1864. His record of service in Pennsylvania, Register of Military Volunteers, 1861-1865 notes that he was born about 1843 and that he was a paroled prisoner who mustered out with his Company on 28 June 1865. He may have been the George Fisher who had mustered in as a private and mustered out as a corporal.
Note: The reverse of this form contains information on the clothing allowance of Private George W. Fleck, who is the subject of another post.
