Stored in one document preservation binder, this collection contains the 1868 discharge papers of one Allen Jenkins, a hospital
steward in the 14th Infantry Regiment of the United States Army, after three years of service. The discharge is on one parchment
leaf and contains information on Jenkins' character, his physical description, profession before entering the army, and place
and date of birth. A Colonel Charles Sevill, also a brevet brigader general, signed the discharge papers at Fort Yuma, California,
where the Fourteenth was stationed after the Civil War.
In addition, there is an envelope that contained the discharge papers of Allen Jenkins, on which is written, among other things,
"Allen Jenkins Co D 12th Wis Vol Inf," ie, Allen Jenkins, Company D, 12th Wisconsin Volunter Infantry. The Twelfth was disbanded
in 1865. A search of the regimental roster at the
Wisconsin Historical Society
reveals that there was indeed an Allen Jenkins in the Twelfth.
