Diary of 2nd Lieutenant George G. Smith: July 12, 1865

Discharged on account of expiration of term of service. Got discharge papers made out, and regiment disbanded on the 17th. Got my pay on the 18th. Many of the officers did not have their accounts straight with Uncle Sam, and I never learned how it went with them.
