The following are the notes from the ebay seller: "This letter was written and signed by 147 civil war veterans attending the 1898 GAR Encampment at Emporia, Kansas. Signatures and service unit notations are original. It appears that this is the original letter or the only surviving copy made at the 1898 Encampment. Neither the National Archives nor the McKinley Presidential Library and Museum have a record of this letter.

The document measures 6 feet in length and is in Very Good condition having been stabilized by a professional paper conservationist at a major Midwest art museum. The transcription is not complete due to the handwriting of several signatories being difficult to read."
