Civil War

SPECIAL PRESIDENTIAL PARDONS FOR CONFEDERATE SOLDIERS
Following the Civil War and the general amnesty there were over 15,000 soldiers that were excluded due to the fourteen different exclusions given by the government. If one fell under one or more of these exclusions then the individual had to apply for a special personal pardon from President Johnson. Over 15,000 men applied and this book is a compilation of the five documents from the House of Representatives giving their names, reason for exclusion and those Union citizens who vouched for them. There are over 30,000 names in this Index.
