Union Blue and Militia Gray:
The Role of the New York State Militia
in the Civil War
-
Chapter 4
National Guard

Among the important measures passed by the state legislature which met early in January 1862 were bills authorizing counties, cities, towns and villages to make appropriations for the purposes of raising troops and the relief of their families, provisions for the pay of volunteers still in the state, and payment to the families of soldiers of sums allocated from their pay. Bills also provided for expenses incurred in raising troops; reimbursing the militia regiments for losses sustained while on active service, and for the complete enrollment of the militia.
