    Texana/Civil War: Galveston Amnesty Oath. 9.5" x 7.5" printed and manuscript "Amnesty Oath", Galveston, Texas, July 7, 1865. Issued to and signed by Andrew Neill and countersigned by H. Beard, Captain and Provost Marshal. Neill (1813-1883) was a Scottish-born lawyer. He served as Captain of a company of Texas volunteers, but arrived after the Battle of San Jacinto, mustering out in 1837. He fought in various campaigns against the Indians and took part in the expedition to repulse Rafael Vasquez. He was captured while trying a case in San Antonio in 1842 and taken as prisoner to Mexico where he managed to escape. During the Civil War, he moved to Galveston and served as a Lieutenant Colonel in the First Texas Partisan Rangers commanded by Walter P. Lane. The document has three vertical folds, but remains in outstanding condition.
