Title: C. W. McMillin`s Commission as Justice of the Peace in Giles County, Tennessee
Signer : W.G. Brownlow
Signer : S.J. Fletcher

Abstract: This document is titled, "C.W. McMillin`s Commission as Justice of the Peace in Giles County, Tennessee".

As this was made during the early period of reconstruction after the Civil War, it is likely meant to emphasize that Tennessee isonce again, a part of the United States. On the reversr side, C.W. McMillin has written his pledge that he is a loyal citizen and harbors no rebel sympathies and that he will faithfully execute his duties.
