It is well known that not all of Alabama wanted to split with the Federal Government. In many of that state's rural regions those citizens who opposed succession were harassed, robbed and even murdered by their pro-secessionist neighbors. Frightened citizens had to band together for self-preservation, and, as a result, announcements such as this began to circulate among the pro-Northern population of rural Alabama. Including this very rare early war-date pro-Union manuscript announcement, 1p. oblong 8vo., from an unnamed location in Alabama, boldly entitled: "NOTICE", June 8, 1861, reading, in full: "All persons desiring to attach themselves to a Union Company to form a home guard for the protection of our family, and property is earnestly requested to meet us at A. J. Taylor's store on the 14th Inst. and at Wm. Dodd's store on the 15th. Come one. Come all good patriotic Union men…". Worthy of further research and signed by five individuals including, "W. B. Manasce, Silas Morphus…A,. J. Ingle." This notice was found among an archive of Alabama Governor Andrew B. Moore's papers. Near fine.
