Tried Before a Military Commission

One man was charged with kidnapping a negro contraband who was working for the U.S. Q.M. Department and selling him into slavery in Kentucky!

13 pages, string bound imprint, 4 3/4 x 7 1/8.

Extremely interesting document regarding five separate cases brought before a U.S. Military Commission. The document gives the charges, specifications, findings and sentences for each case.

Joseph R. Hammill, was charged with larceny and misapplication and embezzlement of public money. It specifies that Hammill entered the home of Elijah Boswell, of Charles County, Maryland, and did feloniously take and carry away a large sum of money, the property of the said Boswell. It further states that Hammill, at the time was in the service of the U.S. military authorities as an engineer and employed under Colonel Lafayette C. Baker, Provost Marshal of the War Department, and did take in the name of the U.S. from the said Elijah Boswell, a large sum of money, and then converted it to his own use, misapply, and embezzle the said money.

William Yokum, was charged with aiding and kidnapping and abstracting an employee of the U.S. from the military service, to the prejudice of good order and military discipline. It specifies that Yokum, being an employee of the U.S. in charge of contrabands at the military post at Cairo, Illinois, and serving with the Army of the U.S. in the field, did induce one Morris McComb, a negro contraband under his charge, and an employee of the U.S. in the Q.M. Dept. at said post, to accompany him, under a false pretense, to a point on the Ohio River, and did there deliver him to one Joseph K. Gant, who then and there by force of arms, the said Yokum, seized and confined with ropes the said McComb, and conveyed him from said post and service, with the view of having McComb conveyed to the state of Kentucky and reduced to slavery. It further states that Yokum did accept and receive from said Gant, as a compensation for his services of delivering McComb into slavery, the sum of $50.

John H. Germon, was charged with embezzling and misapplying military subsistence stores belonging to the U.S. that was entrusted to him, which he wrongfully appropriated for his own private use and that of his family.

Henry W. Scott, a contractor acting on behalf of the U.S., was charged with willful neglect of duty. He had agreed to furnish the U.S. Army certain articles of clothing which he did not deliver.

Captain John S. Davis, 90th Regiment Pennsylvania Volunteers, was charged with conduct prejudicial to good order and military discipline, and conduct unbecoming an officer and a gentleman. It states that Captain Davis, after being relieved from duty as Commandant of Camp of Distribution, and ordered to join his regiment, did go to the city of Washington, D.C., in an ambulance from the camp, and purchased rockets and other fireworks, and returned to camp and caused the rockets and fireworks to be discharged by enlisted men belonging to the camp on a hill inside the lines and overlooking the camp, after the hour designated for taps, when all lights are to be extinguished and quiet to reign in camp, without the knowledge or consent of his superior officers, and with the apparent intention of offering insult to his commanding officer, causing the men of the camp to cheer and indulge in boisterous language in willful disobedience to orders, rules and regulations.
