was made.

A fourth meeting was held and an appropriation
of $900 was made. Elizur C. Tuttle and Horatio X.
Warner were appointed a committee to fill the quota,
but it is not thought they succeeded.

On j\Iarch 3, 1S63, came the act of Congress order-
ing a draft. The following July a fifth meeting was
called, at which it was voted :

That every person drafted into the service of the United States
who responded either personally or by substitute, or paid com-
mutation fee of §300, should be paid §150 from the treasury of the
town.

A resolution appropriating a sum not to exceed
$5,000 was carried to provide for this purpose. The
draft was imminent. The authorities used great exer-
tion, but were still thirty-six behind their quota. An
enrollment of the town was ordered, which was made
by James T. Hall, and the following persons were
conscripted in August :

Franklin Beecher, Vernon C. Stiles,

John J. Culver, Rowe S. Bradley,

Rufus Thorpe, ^ James M. Baldwin,

Sheldon B. Thorpe, Hubbard Barnes,

Jonathan B. Allen, Maurice Halligan,

Jidian W. Tuttle, Chester Robinson,

Of this number, six were ineligible, two procured
substitutes, four had already been excused, thirteen
paid the commutation fee, and the balance escaped
somehow— no one knows — but none enlisted.

The next public meeting took place November 25,
1S64. At this time it was voted to pay each resident
of the town that had furnished a substitute since
July I, 1864, or who might volunteer, the sum of $200.
(This was the highest bounty offered). Here follows
a list of those who availed themselves of this offer
and furnished substitutes:

George W. Clinton, $200.
Daniel A. Patton, S200.
F. Hayden Todd, §200.
George Henry Todd, $200.
James M. Baldwin, $200.
A. Ellsworth Austin, §;2oo.
Vernon C. Stiles, $200.
Dennis T. Mansfield, $200.
Chauncey W. Blakeslee, $200.
George Clough, $200.
Sherlock A. Mansfield, $200.
Hobart Blakeslee, $200.

In December, 1864, it was feared that another levy
of men would be made. A public meeting was called.
A committee of one in each district was appointed
" to canvass the towji to see how much money can be
raised among the first-class military subjects and
report at a meeting to-morrow evening." In twenty-
four hours they made the following report:

The last public meeting- was held January 2, iSf,;,
At this time the quota had been completely lilki.i,
particularly through the exertions of Dea. WhiiiKv
Elliott (to whom more than any other person, credit
is due for three yeais'workin this direction), and it
was voted that the selectmen might suspend the pay-
ment of all bounties when in their judgment it was
expedient.

The next step was the payment of the expenses
incurred. In 1869 a computation of the cost was
made, showing that for bounties, premiums and suj'-
port of families of soldiers there had been paid Sic,-
404.34; paid by individuals for bounties to stibstitutcs,
^3,956.50, and paid by individuals for commutation
from the draft, $2,100. These tigur'es fail by some
hundreds to include the whole cost. Before the entire
claim was discharged not less than §rS,ooo was
expended — possibly $20,000.

Ill all these stirring times the women were by no
means idle. It is a pity no record was kept of their
labors. By twos and threes, and often individually.
they made bandages, prepared lint, furnished cloth-
ing, raised funds. Among others, the names of ]\Iary
F. Linsley, Margaret E. Hall, Ann E. Bishop, should
never be forgotten in speaking of these dread days of
the nation's peril.

Also, no systematic account was kept of the monc}-
from time to time sent as exigencies demanded. The
Congregational Sunday School in 1S61 contributed
$2.00 toward a chapel tent for the Fourth Conn.,
$5.00 for books for the Seventh Conn., and $2.00
for chapel tent for the Tenth Conn. In 1862 the same
organization gave $2.50 for books for the Fifteenth
Conn., and Vx'hitney Elliott donated $100.00 to the
North Haven boys of Company K of that regiment.
In 1864 from various sources there was sent to the
Christian commission $180.50, and in October of that
year $94 by the Congregational Sunday School to

During these years the town was pretty evenly
divided politically. Party lines were sustained but
the democrats in the main were " war democrats "
and loyal. No complaint ever rose of blocking- the
wheels of local government in town. It is true those
were in it who held conservative views and who dif-
fered from the policy of the town authorities, but who
made no demonstration.

The following schedule of " substittites " furnished
is here submitted. It is not known whether in all
cases the names are correct, but all care possible has
been given it, that if inquiries from their descendants
should arise in the future there may be some clue for
an answer :

term in this regiment under an assumed name. At
his attempted enlistment, being iinder sixteen years
of age, he was rejected. One Smith B. French of the
town of Orange had enlisted, but circumstances arose
before being sworn into the service, whereby it was
desirable he should remain at home. Young Gill
eagerly embraced the suggestion that he should take
French's place, assume his name and take the oath, all
of which he did and went to the front with his com-
rades. No better or braver soldier was found in the
