Milton Mills Resignation Acceptance
February 12, 1864
Web Author's Notes:

This appears to be a payroll-related document which includes a transcription of the acceptance of the resignation of Maj. Milton Mills. Mills resigned from the 16th OVI on February 12, 1864, due to ill health. This document was authored on May 8, 1865, the purpose, apparently, to specify the final pay issued to Mills upon his departure from the military.

This document was among the papers of Maj. Milton Mills and was handed down through his family.
