    Description

    [Daniel S. Curtis]. Commonwealth of Virginia Military Equipment Procurement Bond With a Sketch Map of the Bermuda Hundred Campaign on the Verso. From the effects of Major Daniel Curtis of the 1st District of Columbia Cavalry. The partially printed document measures 6" x 8" and is dated April 20, 1861. The bond binds T. J. Harrison of the Sussex Dragoons [5th Virginia Cavalry] for $26 in exchange for a "Sabre to be used in the Company." This rare and early bond is signed by two witnesses and lists in the lower margin the "Price of Arms and Equipments" which were available for purchase. The verso has a hand-drawn pencil sketch map giving the location of Union troops on May 29 and 30, 1864, during the Bermuda Hundred Campaign in Virginia. Specifically identified in pencil are the locations of the "5th Penn," "11th Penn," "3rd N.Y.," and the "1st D.C.C." Behind these troops was the "Line of Cavalry Division - Gen [August] Kautz." "Hd Qrs" is located behind Kautz's cavalry line. Below the map is written, "near Bermuda Hundred May 29th & 30th 1864." The map also identifies the locations of "standing timber" and "slashed timber." Other annotations also appear on the page. The Bermuda Hundred Campaign, which occurred in May 1864, was a series of battles in the vicinity of Bermuda Hundred near Richmond. The 1st District of Columbia Cavalry arrived at the campaign on May 12. The toned leaf bears some foxing; separation is beginning along one fold.
