Offered here is an interesting June 1863 Confederate Civil War document by which the officers and men of the 57th Georgia were paid just prior to the surrender of Vicksburg. This is Confederate form No. 6, "Monthly Summary Statement of Funds Received and Disbursed." It indicates that $1,174.56 was paid to the troops in June. It was written and signed by Captain Marcus W. Johnson of the 57th. About a month later, the entire regiment was surrendered along with the rest of Pemberton's army at Vicksburg.

The document measures about 16" x 10 1/4". The paper is typical of Confederate paper in that it's quite thin, but it remains sturdy. Little wear to edges and corners. There are a couple small holes in the document, visible in the photos. Creases where originally folded.
