Return to Assorted Documents of the
Freedmen Bureau

Return to Lincoln Proclamation of
Amnesty
Loyalty Oath
Unknown
Montgomery County, Maryland
October 11, 1864
Freedmen Bureau Records
Notes:
Unfortunately this document is almost impossible to read. On October 11, 1864 in Montgomery County,
Maryland someone took this oath. The document was not completely filled out with a physical description. This
is NOT Abraham Lincoln's loyalty oath. Maryland had not gone with the Confederacy and the
Emancipation
Proclamation did not apply to this state. On November 1, 1864 the slaves would be liberated by the State of
Maryland and the owners would be compensated. The document has wording that is the same as the
Railroad
Oath from 1862
