When Lincoln called for 150,000 volunteers and soon raised the number to 300,000, many counties throughout the Union established bounties to be paid to volunteers. Most counties did not have the cash to fund the bounties and had to borrow the funds from citizens. This note was issued to repay George W. Denbo $9.15 as a part of such loan as a vol bounty fund and states that it is an "Expense of Volunteering." The note was issued by the treasurer of Harrison County and is dated 1865 at Corydon, Indiana.
