This document officially appoints and commissions James Montgomery as a Colonel of the Third Regiment of Volunteers, State of Kansas--part of General Lane's Brigade. Montgomery was an obvious choice for such a post due to his experience as a Jayhawker during the Bleeding Kansas period that followed the passage of the Kansas-Nebraska Act of 1854, as well as his ardent support of the Union at the eve of the Civil War.

Date: June 24, 1861
