Rare, lengthy war-date A.E.S. on the verso of an "Application for Authority to Appear Before a Medical Examining Board", 1p. 4to., [Columbia SC], Apr. 12, 1865, an examination of Pvt. Duncan McRa of the 2nd SC Infantry attached to Conner's Brigade, signed by McRa and the attending Confederate surgeon noting that McRa had been wounded on Oct. 13, 1864 and was: "...permanently disabled for field service in consequence of a gunshot wound through the bladder injuring the pubis and ischium...".
