-- Gettysburg Compiler June 06, 1864
THE DRAFT The Draft, to fill the quotas of delinquentsub-districts in this Congressional district, commenced at Chambersburgon Monday last. Franklin county was drawn on the day, Somerseton Thursday, Adams and Fulton on Friday, and Bedford on Saturday.We hope to be able to secure a list of the drafted men in thiscounty before putting this number of the Compiler to press. Wehave at least made arrangements to that end.
Capt. Eyster gives notice that the Board will examine Draftedmen at Chambersburg from the 6th to the 11th of June; at Gettysburgfrom the 13th to the 17th of June; at McConnelsburg from the 20thto the 22d of June; at Bedford from the 24th of June to the 8thof July; at Somerset from the 11th to the 18th of July.
Drafted men are notified to be careful to take with them theirnotice of Draft when they report for examination. The Board willgo into session at 7 o'clock each morning. The men are requestedto be there at that hour or as soon thereafter as possible.
Examinations at Gettysburg, McConnelsburg, Bedford and Somersetwill be held at the Court Houses in those towns. Drafted men orderedto report at these points, and who fail to attend on their day,will lose the benefit of an examination near home, and be obligedto appear afterwards at Chambersburg. We may remark, by the way,that for the convenience and saving of time and money in havingthese examinations held in the respective counties, those interestedshould thank our efficient Member of Congress, Hon. A. H. Coffroth,who introduced the measure in Congress.
Gettysburg and Hamilton escape the Draft, having filled theirquotas with volunteers.
