Collection Description

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.
