    Description

    Civil War: African-American Enlistment Papers of Amos Phillips. 7.75" x 10.75" two-sided printed & manuscript enlistment papers for Amos Phillips, a laborer. Dated at Fort Smith, Arkansas, November 26, 1864. The document is signed by the examining surgeon, the recruiting officer and by the enlistee (his "mark"). Phillips enlisted for three years, unless sooner discharged, in the "colored volunteers". He formerly resided in Yazoo, Mississippi and was probably a slave who escaped to Union lines or was liberated during the fall of Vicksburg. Minor separation at two folds. Quite unusual.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
