HISTORY OF DRAFTS.
Hon tho I'uioii Army Was Heerulteil Dur
ing Urn (1,11 War.
Tho flrt suggestion of a draft was
mado In 1SG1 by Colonel P.. 11. Marcy, of
New York, to General McClollan. The
latter officer recommended that it bo
carried out, as men wero neoded at once.
No drafting, however, was authorizod
during that vear. duly 1, lbli'J, tho Pres
ident called for .",00,000 moro volunteers
for tho war, and by tho terms of tho or
der theso wero to be drafted if thoy did
not olunteer promptly. August 0 fol
lowing President Lincoln asked for an
additional !!00,000 men for nlno months,
with a liko proviso for compulsory en
llstment If uecessarv. Several orders
wero issued by the Secretary of War to
prevent the evasion of military duty un
der this call, but tolunteerlng was so
generally stimulated by local prldo and
local bounties at tho timo that there
was very Httlo onforced enlistment nec
essary. Probably up to February 1, 180,1,
thero wero not 10,000 drafted men In tho
army. In view of tho fact that a large
part of tho volunteer forco would soon
b disbanded because of tho expiration
of their terms of service, early In 1S63
thero was brought forward In Congress
an enrollment and conscription act,
authorizing the Presi lent to recruit tho
army, when necessary, by drafting from
tho able-bodied male citizens of tho
country between tho ages of SO and 45.
This nieasuie met with considerable ob
lection, butfiniiHy becamo a law March
S. Under this law tho President ap
pointed a Provost JIarshal General,
whoso otllco should be in Washington,
and tho entire country was divided Into
districts, with a Provost Marshal over
oach. Theso wero to inako an enroll
ment of all tho ablo-bodied men of tho
proper ago In each district. Juno 15
a call was mado for SCO, 000 mon under
.tho conscription act. In tho major
ity of Instances tho machinery of tho
dratt was not put in lorce, as every ef
fort was made to oncourago'volunteor
Ing. It Is estimated that in tho twelve
States in which itwasenforeodtho draft
had resulted, by December I, 1883, in
adding about 50,000 men to tho army. It
also accumulated by that time a fund of
810,515,800, derived from "commuta
tions," for any drafted man was allowed
to buy oxemption from sorvico by pav
ing $800. This fund was used for boun
ties to tho volunteer soldiers. October
15, 1803, 300,000 moro voluntoors wero
called for and it was ordered that It any
btato failed to ralso tho quota assigned
to It under this call, a draft would bo
made to fill tho deficiency, beginning
January 5, 1804. This call was gonorally
filled by volunteers, but as the need of
tho service for moro men continued Im
perative, 200,000 moro wore called for
Fobruary 1, 1804, and, March 14, an
additional 200,000. April 15
was doslgnatod as tho time up to
which tho number required from any
district might bo raised by voluntary
enlistment; after tbatdato tho draft was
to bo put In forco. July 4, 1804, Congress
amended tho conscription act by tho
provision that hereafter when any call
for troops was mado, tho ward, town or
district which had no( filled Ha quota by
