The Posted Bill For Drafted Deserters.
This is an interesting find from the Schuylkill County Historical Society it is a listing of the Drafted men from the county who are listed as deserters in May of 1865 If you take notice there are some interesting names listed here.
This is certainly a list I would'nt want to find my relatives on!
Schuylkill County had a problem during the Civil War with the draft from early on. If you are interested contact me and I will email you the info.
