Omtale Parole, Pardon, Pass and Amnesty Documents of the Civil War
This book presents the little-studied story of the history and documents of the pardons, passes, paroles and promises of loyalty used by both North and South. The words of the loyalty oaths required for passes, paroles and pardons grew from a few simple lines to several paragraphs, over time. Conditions were added and pre-qualifications modified. This history provides insights into the politics, culture and battlefield realities present during the conduct of the war.
