On offer is a handwritten letter dated December 15th, 1862. Penned by William A. Mackenzie writes John Hanna (United States District Attorney at the time); the shocking content outlines the illegal actions of a named captain of Company D, 71st Regiment of the Indiana Infantry. The Captain has been found guilty of swindling the Government by falsifying payrolls and extorting funds from his troops. He goes on to say the community asked Mackenzie to place the matter before Hanna for prosecution using the 'overwhelming evidence.' Slight fault at the fold line otherwise fine.
