100 Years Ago: Rounding Up Deserters

The Intelligencer September 15, 1916 (page 2)

“Rounding Up Deserters. Private Watson has been kept pretty busy lately rounding up deserters from the 155th Battalion. On Tuesday he shipped out three. From recent developments it would appear that not all the men who enlisted here did so from purely patriotic motives. Some of them should be supplied with two pairs of socks. They appear to be suffering considerably from cold feet.—Bancroft Times.”
