Dearborn, MI, United States

At the outbreak of the Civil War, President Lincoln called for volunteers to help save the Union. This 1862 broadside rallied men from northern New York to join. McComb's Plattsburg Regiment became the 96th New York Infantry Regiment. These soldiers served in Virginia and North Carolina for most of the war and were part of the troops to occupy Richmond, Virginia in 1865.
