Civil War Militia Draft

Transcribed from the Ebensburg Alleghanian October 23, 1862

The Drafted Militia

The much talked of, reasonably dreaded, Draft of Militia was made
throughout the State on Thursday, some two hundred being drawn in this
county alone. No undue excitement was manifested, but on the contrary,
everything was conducted with dignity and decorum. Commissioner Harr
was present and superintended the delicate operation. Constable O'Neill
acted as assistant and blindfolded, drew the required number of names
from the wheel. They are as follows:
