Grouping of two items related to the 33rd Indiana Volunteer Infantry. This first is a discharge certificate for Alfred Underhill who would serve in Company I. His service would be short and late in the war. Mustering with the company in late March, 1865 a short 4 months before being discharged that July. He appears to have had earlier service as well in the 5th Indiana Cavalry in 1862. Another brief stint at military life as he is reported as deserting just 2 months after enlisting. Accompanying the discharge is an original first edition copy of “History of the Thirty-Third Indiana Veteran Volunteer Infantry” published in 1900. This was the personal copy which belonged to Melvin B. Abbott who would serve in Company G. He would muster with the regiment during it’s initial creation in September, 1861. Melvin would serve all four years of the war re-enlisting in January, 1864 before finally being mustered out of service in July, 1865. He has signed this copy twice on the inside cover. This book contains the company roster which includes Abbott. Apparently he did not care for the fact that they left off his promotion to 1st corporal so he took the liberty of penciling it in next to his name. These are accompanied by some research material on Underwood and the 33rd. Nice grouping.
