Click on an image to enlarge
What a great piece of Georgia Confederate history! This is an original soldier's parole from the end of the War. The Confederate soldier would have to sign one of these so he could go back home to start living his life again. When you see the document it is easy to say it is in rough shape but you need to remember that the soldier had to carry the piece to prove he had rejoined the United States. As for the document itself, it is a partially printed page with the blanks filled in using fine brown ink. It measures 8 inches by 7 inches in overall size. The heading is from Thomasville, Georgia and is dated May 24, 1865. The document was issued to "J.S. Holmes a Private of the 4th Regiment of Ga Cavalry" who does "solemnly swear that I will not bear arms against the United States of America, or give any information, or do any military duty whatsoever until regulation exchanged as a prisoner of war..." The parole also offers a physical description of Holmes and notes that it is done by order of Brigadier General E.M. McCook. At the bottom of the document it is signed by the Lieutenant that was commanding the Post, Thomas Scott. This is a great piece of history!
