The Soldier's Manual Pensions, Increase, Bounty and Pay was published by Milo B Stevens & Company in 1888. The manual measures 6 by 8 1/2 inches and contains 48 pages.All the pages are intact and are clean. The paper covers are tattered along the edges but are attached. There is some loss of the back cover... Some of the articles include; rates for total and specific disabilities, widows children's and dependents' pensions, bounties, people of color issues, deserter issues, lost horses and equipment, use and risk of horses, lost property, disloyalty and more.
