Fort Gibson, Cherokee Nation;
George Wiegand, a white man, and a citizen of the Cherokee Nation by marriage, being first duly sworn, upon his oath says:
I enlisted in the Third Wisconsin Regiment, in the month of September 1863, and served nearly two years. I was wounded in fight on the Ozark Prairie. I was sent to Prairie De Chene, and was discharged on the 29th of July 1865.
I gave John W. Wright my discharge in February 1867. He now informs me that on account of the governor of Wisconsin he could not get my money for two or three years.
Sworn to and subscribed in my presence this 19th day of September 1867.
J. F. MUNSON,
First Lieutenant and Adjutant, Sixth Infantry.
