Item No. 9611005

An interesting military pass dated April 13th, 1863 permitting Captain Daniel Klein of the 6th Connecticut to “pass the entrenchments and return until April 30th 1863.” It is signed at bottom by a Lieutenant M. S. James. At the top is the heading, “Headquarters, U. S. Forces / Hilton Head, S. C.” The form has Colonel Joseph R. Hawley’s name (7th Connecticut) pre-printed, but James scratched that name out and replaced with with Brigadier General Alfred Terry’s name.

The pass measures about 8” x 5” and is in very good condition, with minor foxing and toning. Creased where originally folded.
