Civil War- Unused, Interesting Union Army Requisition Form for “Fuel” #1354

Unusual Civil War requisition form. We have sold a variety of Civil War requisition documents over the years—horses and food, blankets and tents, but this is the first I’ve seen where the items to be supplied are fuel—cord wood and coal, I assumed that units in the field simply cut their own wood as needed but depending on the circumstances, especially if it were a winter encampment, the needs would be substantial. You can see that the amount of fuel for the month was dependent on the men in camp, as well.
