Judah Benjamin, Manuscript Letter, Signed, With Ephemera
Judah Benjamin, Mustering in Confederates
Judah Benjamin refers Boggs to this highly detailed Circular “in conformity with which you are authorized to muster into service the several Companies for the Battalion of Light Artillery which you have been authorized to raise, and to order the men, as soon ad enlisted, to a place of rendezvous, &c.” The Circular is included, too.
It pertains to the terms of acceptance of troops: organization, supplies, furloughs, pay, etc. Signed in type by Benjamin. [Parrish 2228 shows only 1 copy] [circa Richmond: 1862]
A nice pair of documents particularizing the aforementioned enlistment of troops. Each very good with folds and light foxing; signature excellent.
