Camp 29th Massachusetts Veteran Volunteers

October 22nd 1864

Captain Thomas W. Clarke
Acting Assistant Adjutant General
3rd Brigade, 1st Division, 9th Army Corps


John Moore Jr., a private of Company K, 29th Massachusetts Veteran Volunteers, was enlisted and mustered into the service of the United States in Boston, Massachusetts, August 12, 1862, under provision of General Order, No. 28 Headquarters State of Massachusetts dated July 23rd 1862 (copy enclosed). The term of service of the company in which he enlisted expired the 21st day of May 1864. At the time the regiment reenlisted Private Moore was absent sick. He joined the regiment at Covington, KY, March 27th 1864 and while the regiment was Enroute to Massachusetts on veteran furlough. He signified his intention to reenlist and was permitted to accompany the regiment to Boston, Massachusetts where effort were made to have him mustered as a “Veteran Volunteer” under authority given in a communication from the War department, promulgated in General Order, No. 45, Headquarters State of Massachusetts dated December 24, 1863 (copy enclosed), but without success. Since the return of the regiment to the field, repeated efforts have been made to have this man remustered but without success. I would respectfully ask that he be mustered out of service and discharged, or that he be remustered as a “Veteran Volunteer” to date March 20 1864, that he may receive the “Veteran” bounties to which he is justly entitled.

I have the honor to be,

Very respectfully,
Your Obedient Servant,

John M. Deane
Captain, Commanding
Company K
29th Massachusetts Veteran Volunteers
