George Bond Claim, Southern Claims Commission

Title

George Bond Claim, Southern Claims Commission

Description

This is Page 3 of George Bond's accepted claim. It lists all of the items seized by union foraging parties, with valuation provided by him.

The commission itself was formed by act of congress on March 3, 1871 to handle reimbursement requests by citizens who had their goods seized by union foraging parties. To actually receive reparations one had to prove their loyalty to the Union during the war, a feat that was incredibly difficult to do with only 7.7% of the claims being accepted. Thus, these documents provide a useful insight into what citizens were doing during the war and how they responded to the Union movements through the south in the form of the proofs of loyalty submitted alongside the claims.
