Frequently Asked Questions

Why is there more than one image associated with a particular document?
Because this collection of papers was reconstituted from archives scattered across the United States, oftentimes more than one copy of a document was recovered. Sometimes these documents may be slightly different. To preserve the archival record, and to allow you to access multiple versions of these historically valuable documents, we have retained and posted all images of all versions in our possession.
