John Johnson,

The reason of such a large draft being levied in Cohoes,
was that no especial inducements were made to encourage
volunteers, so that many men from here enlisted in Troy
where large bounties were offered. In the latter place
no draft was made, their quota being filled, with a hundred
men to spare.

Another call was issued in October by the president for
300,000 men to be furnished before January 1st, 1864, and
earnest efforts were made to enroll sufficient volunteers in
the town to avoid the necessity of another draft. New re
cruiting agents were appointed by the committee at Albany,
Malachi Weidman and John Doyle being among those
in Cohoes, and additional inducements were offered. The
bounty for veteran recruits was fixed at $552, and for new
recruits at $3 7 V. In addition to this, the supervisors offered
an extra bounty to volunteers of $300. A town meeting
was held Dec. 10, recommending the raising by tax of a
sufficient sum to enable the payment of the same allowance



1864. HISTORY OF COHOES. 157

to those who had been drafted, as to those who might be
drafted under the new call. A meeting was held in Cohoes
a week later, of which W. F. Carter was president and D.
H. Van Auken, secretary, to protest against such action as
unjust, since in many cases the extra compensation would
be unnecessary. The citizens were in favor, however, of
granting such relief as might be needed by men drafted
from this village, and, among others, passed the following
resolution : " On motion of Win. G. Caw, seconded by S.
A. Becker, the sum of ten thousand dollars (the amount
recommended by the trustees for the relief of the drafted
men of this village), be and the same is hereby ordered to
be raised by tax upon the taxable property of this village."
A committee of six was appointed to ascertain the number
of enlisted men which should be credited to the village
quota, and see that their names were duly entered. The
quota under the new call was 71, one-third of which had
been secured by enlistments since the last draft.

In January, 1864, a call was made for 200,000 more men,
the quota for Albany county being 993. The county
bounty of $300 was continued, and the efforts to obtain
recruits renewed with vigor ; and on March 1st it was an
nounced that the quota of the county was filled, with a
surplus of several hundred.

In July 500,000 men were called for, to be furnished before
Sept. 1st. Under this call the quota of Albany county after
deducting the surplus above mentioned was 1,600. Messrs.
Weidman & Doyle were reappointed recruiting agents in
Cohoes, and the work commenced in earnest. The supervi
sors offered a bounty of $900, for volunteers for one year,
and the sum of $100 to every person who should bring for
ward an accepted recruit. This proved a strong inducement,
and the county escaped the draft, Cohoes having done
her full share in contributing recruits. Eighty-six men
left in the 91st Reg t, about ten in the 12th N. Y. Cavalry,
and a number of others in different regiments.



158 HISTORY OF COHOES. 1865.

The continued successes of the Union army during the
campaigns of the ensuing fall and winter, and the series of
brilliant victories in the spring of 1865 which marked the
overthrow of the rebellion, awoke general enthusiasm. The
news of each triumph was received here, as elsewhere, with
the greatest rejoicings. The demonstrations on the occa
sion of the capture of Richmond were thus described in the
Troy Daily Times, April 3d.

" Yesterday s war news so completely surprised the peo
ple of Cohoes that they were unable to control themselves.
In honor of the occasion the flags were raised from nearly
every staff, and some of the mills hung flags from their
roofs. Bells were rung and whistles blown for about half
an hour. In the evening there was a grand demonstration
by the citizens generally. They formed a procession headed
by a band and paraded the principal streets, the band play
ing patriotic airs. Illuminations and bonfires in the evening.
The operatives in some of the mills turned out to help
honor the event. Richmond is ours !"

Similar demonstrations followed the announcement of
Lee s surrender, April 7. Another public meeting was held,
and appropriate speeches were made by H. B. Silliman and
other citizens. The village was yet in the midst of these
rejoicings, when like a thunderbolt came the news of the
assassination of the president, which cast a gloom through
out the place. Private residences, stores and factories were
draped in mourning, and on the day of Mr. Lincoln s
funeral there was a general suspension of business, and ser
vices were held in the different churches. On April 25th,
when the remains lay in state in the Capitol at Albany, they
were visited by hundreds of our citizens.

The restoration of peace added unusual interest and sig
nificance to the celebration this year of the 4th of July,
and in Cohoes the demonstration was unusually large. The
following is a summary of the account of the exercises
given in the Cataract:



1865. HISTORY OF COHOES. 159

" The weather was all that could be desired, clear and
pleasant. As no pains had been spared by the Hon. C. H.
Adams, president of the day, and the committee of arrange
ments, the details of the celebration were perfect, and
nothing occurred to mar the harmony of the occasion.
The day was ushered in by the national salute and ringing
of bells. At half past ten, the procession, under direction
of the marshal, H. Brockway, Esq., and his assistants,
Adj t Malachi Weidman, Capt. Thomas Calkins, Capt. F.
Keating, Capt. Wm. Shannon, W. Mallery, Win. Manning,
Wm. Conliss, C. Houlihan, Jas. Acheson and Michael
Monahon, commenced moving in the following order :

1. Co. I, 1th Heavy Artillery, N. Y. V.

This veteran company under command of Capt. Jas.
O Hare, made a fine appearance and commanded the plau
dits of the citizens along the entire line of march.

2. The Car of Liberty.

This contained the Goddess of Liberty, surrounded by
her guardians, art, science, agriculture, etc., and thirty-six
young ladies representing the states.

3. Fire Department.

4. Committee of Arrangements, Orator, Header and
Village Officials.

5. St. Bernards Sunday School.

6. The Trades.

The exercises on the island were opened with prayer by
Rev. A. J. Bingham. The Declaration was then read by
P. D. Niver, and an oration delivered by Rev. A. T. Pierson,
of Waterford."

Soon after the close of the war, a number of prominent
citizens of Albany commenced making efforts to procure
the erection in that city of a Hall of Military Record, in
which should be preserved the names of all soldiers who
had enlisted from this state, accounts of the services of
individuals and regiments, and all documents, relics or
mementoes in any way connected with the war. Circulars
were addressed to the different supervisors, and contribu
tions solicited. The Cataract, in commenting on the enter
prise, said : "We trust and believe that this town, which
occupies so prominent a place among those that contributed
largely in men and in money to bringing the late struggle



160 HISTORY OF COHOES. 18fif>.

to a successful and glorious close, will not be behind in an
undertaking, the design of which is to perpetuate in memory
not only the noble deeds of her heroes, but also those of
the entire state." The project, which was carried out, was
in many particulars very successful. It was found im
possible, however, to obtain accurate records of the soldiers,
and in spite of years of labor the lists of many places are to
this day imperfect Cohoes, unfortunately, being among the
number. The census of the village in 1865, gave the
number of soldiers residing here at the time of their enlist
ment as 514, but no complete record of their names and the
regiments to which they belonged has been preserved. As
before mentioned, Cohoes received no credit for much that
she did towards the suppression of the rebellion ; many men,
because no company was forming here, or for the sake of
large bounties, went to other places in some cases out of the
state to enlist, while others who were enrolled in Cohoes,
are credited to Waterford, Albany or Troy, and very often
under the general head of Watervliet.

The names given below have been obtained, for the greater
part, from scattered notices in the columns of the Cataract
some in response to advertisements published in the city
papers during the past autumn, and a number of others from
miscellaneous sources. The list is very far from being com
plete, and it seems impossible at present to obtain one which
shall be so. The preparation of a full and accurate record
will demand a great deal of time, and careful research, and
it is to be hoped that some one with leisure to devote to it,
will undertake the labor:
