Description: Broadside. Sheet measures 10 x 13".

Comments: This original draft broadside was issued three months before the war ended to comply with President Lincoln's request to fill a quota for 300,000 men. Interestingly, there is no notice for substitutes. Instead, the township requests: "[those] who desire to be exempt there from, to contribute, immediately, such sum as shall be considered equitable and proper, to equalize the burden between the two classes..." The broadside is a choice example that is free of foxing and the usual fraying along the borders. Intersecting folds are almost invisible. An exceptional memento from Lincoln's very last Draft call.
