B904 Union Pass

127.50

A 5¾ x 3¼" pass, this was issued from Head Quarters Military District, Washington, DC and dated November 20, 1863. It allowed for W. H. Ransom to pass within the lines of the U.S. Forces to Alexandria and Return on Business. It was good for five days and is clearly stamped in red "Not Transferable." It was signed (quite elaborately) by Joseph J. Giles, Asst Adj Gen. On the reverse Ransom signed an oath of allegiance. The pass is in good condition; it has been folded and, no doubt, carried in a wallet, but there are no tears or frays. Passes with the oath of allegiance have become quite scarce
