Title

Memo of Archive Office, 1875, Disallowed Claim of Thomas Gattis

Description

A memo sent to the Southern Claims Commission in regard to the claim of Thomas Gattis. Using information acquired from the captured Confederate Archives, several "loyal" Confederate citizens were found to have signed a petition asking for protection by Confederate forces. In several files of claimants from Chatham County, this was used as evidence of disloyalty to the Union.
