Doc. 77.-proclamation of Governor Watts. Executive Department of Alabama, Montgomery, Feb. 6, 1864. To the People of Alabama: The recent action of Congress has deprived the State of much of the materials of the second-class militia. It is important to the defence of the State that Alabama shall have more troops subject to the call of her Commander-in-Chief. We have within the State the materials for an efficient army. It needs nothing but the spirit, the prompt and willing spirit,
o for three years have carried their lives in their hands, ready to be sacrificed in defence of their homes and liberty, are willing to battle on while the feet of a hated foe press on our soil, shall we at home be laggards in the race of glory?
I trust no such damning stigma shall rest upon the honored name of Alabama.
I confidently expect a hearty, prompt, and noble response to this call.
The rolls of companies will be reported to the Adjutant-General. T. H. Watts, Governor of Alabama.

Doc. 25.-Southern Reconstruction. Governor T. H. Watts's letter. State of Georgia, Quartermaster General's office, Atlanta, Ga., Sept. 19, 1863. Sir: I herewith enclose you for publication a letter from Hon. T. H. Watts, governor elect Hon. T. H. Watts, governor elect of Alabama, which explains, in terms unmistakable and unequivocal, his views on that foul heresy called reconstruction. Never were sentiments more pregnant with patriotism and devotion to our struggling cause penned. Every true son of the South wil
ng of this letter with spirits more buoyant and confidence more steadfast.
Nor will our noble women fail to exclaim, Governor Watts is right: rather than be subjugated we will march to the field of strife and hare our bosoms to the bullets of the cr lves; true to the memories of the past; true to our homes and our firesides, and true to our God, we cannot, we will not be conquered!
In any and in every event let us prefer death to a life of cowardly shame!
Your obedient servant, T. H. Watts.
