IDENTIFIED CIVIL WAR CLOTHING ISSUE RECORD, DATED 18641865 - 2 SOLDIERS AND THE COMPANY OFFICER NAMED 95TH PENNSYLVANIA VOLUNTEER INFANTRY:  An original Civil War clothing issue record for two soldiers of Company G, 95th Pennsylvania Volunteer Infantry.  The document, measuring 10 by 7.5, is printed with the standard format on both sides and each side has had the information for one soldier entered in handwritten script in ink, detailing the clothing issue to the soldier and the value of the clothing during the period of his enlistment.

Originally known as the Pennsylvania Zouaves, the Ninety-fifth, was organized at Philadelphia, in the month of August, 1861 and served throughout the war in the engagements ranging from Antietam through northern and central Virginia. 

On one side, the form documents the issue for Private George C. Bear who enlisted at Reading, Pennsylvania on March 8th, 1864.  The clothing issues span September 1864 through July of 1865.  Bear signed each entry acknowledging receipt of the clothing and his signature was countersigned by John Williams, likely one of the company officers.

On the opposite side, the form documents the issue for Private Isaac Betz who enlisted at Reading, Pennsylvania on March 5th, 1864.  The clothing issues span September 1864 through July of 1865.  Betz was apparently illiterate, as the form indicates he made his mark, then his name was added for each entry acknowledging receipt of the clothing and his mark was countersigned again by John Williams.

The form is complete with no tears or loss of text.  There is one place where it appears an old piece of adhesive tape came in contact with the paper, but none of the text is damaged.  This is a nice Civil War document and might yield some interesting information about these two soldiers if it was researched further.  (C-106)  $30
