Scarce wartime leaflet encouraging Michigan soldiers from Washtenaw County to vote
As some men returned home from the front after being discharged or furloughed, they often required transportation passes from the Military Commanders Office. This particular pass, signed but unissued, would have provided a soldier a ride on a stage coach to take him to this destination, at the government’s expense. Railroad passes were also issued for the same purpose in many cases. Both examples are fairly scarce with the stagecoach pass more likely the rarer of the two.
1863 dated stagecoach pass provided by the Military Commander’s Office in Michigan.
