Thomas Stanley Granger Volunteer Enlistment and Recruit Statement, August 1862
Thomas Stanley Granger Volunteer Enlistment and Recruit Statement, August 1862
Thomas S. Granger must have looked young at the time, because they made him get his mothers signature to validate his age. Actually early in the war (1861) there was a huge problem with underage kids signing up. If the parents caught the unit before it left the local courts jurisdiction a writ of habeus corpus could be issued. This would tie up the regimental commander, the company commander, and the recruiting officers up in court. At this point in the war recruiters made sure the paper work was correct.
