Recruiting Broadside from Corunna, Michigan Dated November 1863
Click on an image to enlarge
Here is a great piece from Michigan! It is an original recruiting broadside. It proudly states "Provost Marshal's Notice!, Another Call for Troops. Corunna, MI: John N. Ingersoll, 27 November 1863." The paper's overall size measures 9 inches by 14-1/4th inches. The scarce letterpress broadside is partially mounted on board and framed. The frame measures 16 inches by 20 inches. You can tell that this one was used from the creasing, partial separation and some areas of loss at folds, chipping to edges and corners but it is important to remember that these were never intended to last for 160 years. They were to be used, torn down and discarded. It is amazing that any survive. Undersigned in type by members of the Board of Enrollment, including Provost Marshal and President R. Strickland, Henry Raymond, and surgeon E.G. Gale. The broadside provides notice that any person enrolled may appear before the Board of Enrollment of the Sixth Congressional District at Corunna to claim to have his name removed from the list if he is not liable to military duty on account of "1st. Alienage; 2d. Non-residence; 3d. Unsuitableness of Age; 4th. Manifest Permanent Physical Disability." A list naming all persons enrolled in the First Class from the First and Fourth Wards of Owosso City is included at bottom. What a great piece that is ready to be hung on your relic room wall.
