Civil War Payment Voucher For MilitiaGo Back
Presented is a payment voucher for Patrick Condon who was a participant in the volunteer militia in Suffolk, VA during the Civil War. The check-like document (3-3/4″ x 7-1/2″) was supported by the Paymaster-General in Connecticut and was dated April 22, 1863. It orders:
“At sight, or whenever due, pay Patrick Condon or order, the Third payment of Ten Dollars, due me from the State, under “an Act in addition to an Act to provide for the organization of a Volunteer Militia, and to provide for the public defense.” It was stamped PAID on the front and it was signed on the front by the Lieutenant. The back was endorsed by Condon. Overall, the condition is well preserved in consideration of age and the writing that was filled in is still remarkably legible.
