RARE (Unique!) Michigan, Calhoun County, Battle Creek Civil War Loan. We believe this is one of three known. This is 11 for $200 to Charles B Ward. Purchased October 1, 1864. There was a Charles B Ward from Battle Creek who fought with Company B of the 44th Infantry. Mustered out as a sergeant. Signed by supervisor William Harris and township clerk TW Case. Large 50c 'Orig. process' George Washington stamp. (rare?). This bond would have been used to help the Union cause in the Civil War. Interest was paid in full February 1, 1866 and February 1, 1867.
