The Civil War Draft for Campbell County

After the first year or two of the civil war, the number of volunteers dwindled to near zero. The Union needed men to continue the war and so the Enrollment Act was passed and signed by by President Lincoln March, 3, 1863. Under the new draft bill, white males and aliens who had declared their intent to become citizens were eligible for the draft if between ages 20 and 45.

An article in the Kentucky Times Star on April 30, 1917 recalled the local Civil War draft and reprinted the notice received in June 1864 by Conrad Hafner of Newport. It read: .

Provost Marshal's Office, Sixth District, State of Kentucky, June 23, 1864, Conrad Hafner, Campbell County, KY. You are hearby notified that you were legally drafted into the service of the United States for the period of three years in accordance with the provisions of the Act of Congress for enrolling and calling out the National Forces and for other purposes, approved March 3, 1863. You will accordingly report on or before the 29th day of June, 1864 at the place of rendezvous or be deemed a deserter and subject to the penalty prescribed therefor by the rules and articles of war. Transportation will be furnished you on presenting the notification at Covington KY., or the station nearest your place of residence. (Signed) Henry A Mitchell, Major 17th Regiment, V.R.C. Acct Provost Marshall, Sixth District of Kentucky. .

The list of drafted Campbell County men shown below was found in the Saturday Evening American for August 27, 1864. This newspaper was published in Covington and is found on microfilm in the Covington Branch of the Kenton County Public Library. The original article lists those drafted on the second supplemental draft for Kenton and Campbell Counties and mentions that Campbell County had 2208 tickets put in the wheel out of which 362 were drawn. The reader should be aware that transcription errors are likely due to smeared ink and small print on the microfilm. .
