Civil War enlistment verification form.."Oath of Identity " 1860's

This notice of identity was on the outside of my Great Great Grandfathers discharge from the Civil War. I gather it was used to identify those who were in the service and those who were not. Just a guess on my part. The discharge is already on this blog, but I thought it would be interesting to show this part that was used to identify soldiers in the military during that dreadful conflict.
