in the Civil War

This soldier of the 2nd Maryland Volunteers was mortally wounded during the battle of Fredericksburg, Va. in December 1862

Pair of documents. #1: 8 1/2 x 3 1/2, imprinted form, filled out in ink. This document certifies that Morrison Leiber is a resident of Baltimore and is now a member of Company A, of the Second Regiment of Maryland Volunteers, and that he enlisted at Baltimore on the 20th day of April 1861, and that he claims to have a mother dependent on him for support. Signed by Benjamin Matthews, 1st Lt., Co. F, 2nd Regt. Md. Vols.

#2: 8 1/2 x 10 1/2, imprinted form, filled out in ink, on an attractive illustrated City of Baltimore letter head. It reads in part: "I, Mary A. Leiber, a resident of 40 Oregon St. and Moth.[er] of A. Morrison Leiber, belonging to Company A of the Second Regiment, Maryland Volunteers, who was enlisted 20 April/61 and is now in the service of the United States, do solicit, under the provisions of Ordinance No. 66, approved September 27th, 1862, of the City Council of Baltimore, allowances for myself, at the time of his enlistment, and now dependent upon him for support. Signed by Mary A. Leiber with her "X" mark. Oct. 29, 1862." Also signed by a Justice of the Peace and two witnesses.

Both documents are in excellent condition with some light age toning. The smaller form is attached to the larger imprint by some old horse glue at the edges. They can be easily separated if desired. Scarce Maryland Civil War dated imprint.
