Tennessee State Guard Broadside, 1867 May 7

 File — Box: 1, Folder: 1
From the Collection:

This small leaflet responds to citizen concerns by assuring them that the State Guard will in no way molest law abiding citizens. They will aid civil officers in arresting and prosecuting rebels, robbers, and assassins in order to make it safe for loyal citizens and their property. It closes by saying that the State Guard will remain for as long as the outlaws are allowed by the local authorities to continue to run at large. It is signed in print by Wm O. Rickman, Capt. Co. H, 1st Regt., Tenn. State Guards.
