Civil War Recruiting Broadside for the 34th N.Y. Regiment. “GOD AND OUR NATIVE LAND!” is the heading on this 11.5″x 17.5″ medium size poster. Very patriotic in verse with eagle masthead it proclaims, “50 MEN WANTED To complete a Company to be attached to the 34th REG’T. Commanded by Col. Charles Durkee.”
The broadside goes on to list pay, clothing allowance, rations, bounty ($100) and even promises 160 acres of land to each recruit! Printed by Palladium Steam Presses in Malone, New York.
Durkee later became colonel of the 98th New York. It is an excellent example of the patriot spirit in October of 1861.
