This is an interesting document allotting a portion of a soldier’s pay to another individual. Throughout the Civil War, several states set up a form of payroll deduction so that soldiers could set aside a portion of their pay to support those that they had left behind. These funds were usually paid into the state’s treasury for later disbursement and were generally known as the Allotment Fund.
One of these states was Wisconsin, and the presently offered document is physical proof of this system. It is headlined “STATE OF WISCONSIN, STATE TREASURER’S OFFICE” and was issued from Madison "Month Day" 1864. The financial obligation states that there was “RECEIVED from SAMUEL D. HASTINGS, State Treasurer, "X" Dollars, it being the amount of money allotted to me by "A" of Company "X" "Y" Regiment, Wisconsin Volunteers "Z"for the months of "Month" 1864”, followed by the signature of “B”. Below this, in smaller type, is a printed statement reading “I am personally acquainted with "B" who signs the above receipt, and know the signature to be genuine”, guaranteed by the signature of "C". A notation, printed just above the lower border, states that “The above Certificate must be signed by a Justice of the Peace or a Notary Public”, a stipulation that was obviously followed on this particular document. Outside the lower border is a handwritten notation reading “D”, the county or town that "A" was from.
