Researching Soldiers' Discharge Papers

After the Civil War, Soldiers could file their discharge papers with the Clermont County Recorder.
There are three volumes with indexes on the FamilySearch website in the catalog entitled:
"Soldier's discharge records, Vol. 1-3, 1863-1893". The link to find the record is:
Because there was a fee involved many chose not to file them. However, if you find one,
you'll read some interesting information about your ancestor!
