Augusta Newspaper Printed Interesting Ad for Substitute
The Daily Constitutionalist of Augusta printed an ad for a soldier substitute - with an interesting condition.
A Chance for a Substitute.-We give the following advertisement, from the Bayou Sara Ledger: $5,000 for a Substitute.-I will pay the above sum for a substitute. He must be sound so as to pass inspection. One half of the money to be paid when he gets killed, and the other half when he comes back. S. N. White.
