Union County petition

The citizens of Union County circulated and signed four petitions asking Governor Harris Flanagin to exempt Eli W. Pharr from militia duty so he can continue to practice medicine in the county. The petition states that Pharr is the only physician in his township, is only a few months away from turning forty-five, has a delicate constitution, and has a dependent family with two sons in the Confederate service.
