Thomas E. Miller - Private   
I have my great, great grandfather's original discharge form from the civil war...He was wounded slightly in the battle of Springfield, Mo. He was discharged when the unit was mustered out on July 20, 1865. The document is in good shape and has all the original seals and signatures. I wrote to the National Archives and got his military history and pension forms. Lots of interesting information. He seemed to have spent his remaining days in Stillwater, Ok....He is buried in Fairlawn Cemetery in Stillwater(Blk 2, L 13, Sp#1), B-1842 d-1915...
