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