This document has multiple vertical folds and when opened meas. approx. 39.50 inches long x 10.75 inches wide. Once completely folded it meas. approx. 4.00 x 10.75 inches.

The document is preprinted and filled out in completely legible ink. It lists the bounty money paid to two members of the 14th New Jersey’s Company C, Sergeant Henry Mc Adams and Private James W. Grover. The document is dated June of 1865 and issued at Finley General Hospital.

Henry Mc Adams was born in Ireland. He enlisted as a Corporal in Company C, 14th New Jersey Infantry on August 16, 1862 and was promoted to Sergeant March 1, 1865. He was discharged at Finley Hospital on June 17, 1865. After the war he returned to New Jersey where he died and was buried in Evergreen Cemetery, Hillside, New Jersey. Unfortunately his birth and death dates could not be determined. However we were able to discover that sometime in 1895 he was admitted to the New Jersey Home for Disabled Soldiers where he was listed as a 62 year old married man who worked as a mason and who was suffering from vertigo.

James W. Grover was born in 1842. He enlisted as a Private in Company C, 14th New Jersey Infantry on September 2, 1864 and at some point was transferred to Company A. He was discharged at Finley Hospital on June 17, 1865. He returned to New Jersey where he lived until his death in 1920. He is buried in Whitesville Methodist Cemetery, Jackson, New Jersey.

Document is in wonderful clean condition.
