July 21, 2010 (Pen Men at Work): Investigators have made an unforeseen unearthing in the midst of the items that were positioned by a constituent of the Donner Party in a carpetbag. This unearthing was positioned on the squad’s luckless journey to California. The unearthing happens to be a military document with Abraham Lincoln’s writing on it.

The constituent of the Donner Party, James Reed, and his family, transported muster rolls with Lincoln’s name on them. This was at the heart of their cherished heirlooms. This was the data released on Monday by the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum. The document consists of the names of unpaid helpers of Illinois in the Black Hawk War of 1832. This data has been divulged by KCRA 3 television.

The military manuscript is presently being portrayed in a temperature-controlled crypt at the California State Library in Sacramento. It is being depicted in conjunction with other pieces in the James Frazier Reed Collection.

Reed was a comrade of Lincoln. He enabled the organization of the Donner Party journey and transported himself with the document in his control. This was the data revealed by investigators in California, Illinois, and Utah.

Daniel Stowell happens to be an investigator. He has uttered to CNN that it is uncommon for a document of Lincoln to have such a captivating history after it was inscribed. Stowell has mentioned that it is all the more noteworthy that the document was possessed by the Donner Party.

Historical accounts have stated that the Reed document and other manuscripts were destined to get in touch with Captain Jacob M. Early. The Donner Party never managed to traverse the Sierra Nevada mountain range in Northern California. The rationale behind that was they were ensnared by an especially unsympathetic winter.

Reed was chucked out of the Donner Party expedition before they arrived at California. He had been involved in a scuffle with a teammate and knifed him to demise. The papers were left in the possession of Reed’s wife. She continued to journey with the expeditionary squad.
