Oct 19 1864 Cooperation Requested In Order to Correct Mistakes in Previous Enrollment

Click on the MEDIA ITEMS below for more information


Maj. Syester has furnished us with an order from the Provost Marshall of this District, which appears among the new advertisements in this paper, for the re-enrollment of persons liable to Draft in the District. All names improperly enrolled are to be stricken from the list, and the names of any who have been omitted, or have arrived at the age of twenty years since the first enrollment, will be included in the new enrollment. It is to the interest of those liable to the draft, to see that the enrollment in their respective sub-districts is not excessive, while it is likewise important that the names of all persons who are liable to the draft should be borne on the enrollment lists, and thus lessen the chances to be drawn. The citizens of the several sub-districts of this County are requested to cooperate with the Deputy Provost Marshall, Wm. H. Derr, who is now in Hagerstown, for the purpose of correcting any enrollment lists which are imperfect and unjust.
