[58] be authorized to procure recruits ‘in anticipation of a call for five hundred thousand men.’

Yarmouth must have furnished about two hundred and fifty men for the war, which was a surplus of five over and above all demands, none of whom were commissioned officers in the military service. There were fifteen who were volunteer officers in the navy, and three of the principal pilots on the South-Carolina coast were citizens of Yarmouth. The whole amount of money appropriated and expended by the town for war purposes, exclusive of State aid to soldiers' families, was seventeen thousand and seventeen dollars ($17,017). This does not include $3,592.10, voluntarily contributed by private citizens to pay bounties.

The amount of money raised and expended by the town for aid to soldiers' families, and afterwards reimbursed by the Commonwealth, was as follows: In 1861, 00; in 1862, $506.43; in 1863, $1,475.04; in 1864, $1,309.93; in 1865, $1,223.31. Total in four years, $4,514.71.
