DescriptionConfederate Surgeon Samuel Houston Caldwell's Oath of Allegiance to the United States at the Close of the War. Caldwell served with General Nathan Bedford Forrest's command until the end of the Civil War. He made his way to Mississippi on his return to his native Paris, Tennessee and met with Colonel William E. Travis, formerly of the 5th Tennessee Infantry. Before returning to Tennessee he signed this oath of allegiance to the United States in Mississippi. Numbered 592, this pre-printed document is on lined blue paper and specifically mentions the emancipation of slaves. Caldwell took his slave, Joe Caldwell, with him and his family were significant slaveholders in Tennessee. The document is in excellent condition with a slight tear at the top.
