In when the great civil War of 18gigs was in Progress All Over the North there were men who were opposed to the Lincoln administration and the prosecution of the War. Many of these men could not be ranked As traitors because they were not really at heart desirous for a dismemberment of the Union and the dismantling of the old Flag by the obliteration of a Star from its Constellation. But their opposition Rose in a great measure from the bitter partisan spirit that pervaded the country during the Campaign that preceded or. Lincoln to the presidency. The Republican party was the outgrowth of the slavery agitation and a determination on the part of the slaveholders of the South to extend the institution into territory consecrated to Freedom by the compromises of 1820 and 1850 and the right by these slaveholders to take heir slaves into any territory and hold property rights in them prior to statehood. It was to meet and counteract this aggression of the slave oligarchs that the Republican party was formed and or. Lincoln had Tenily said that quot a House divided against itself could not stand that this Union could not exist permanently part slave and part free that it would in time become All of one or All of the and with this declaration As a platform he had been elected to the chief Magis to icy of the nation in opposition to the democracy which had necessarily taken the opposite View that the country should exist part slave and part free. Secession first and War second being a resultant of Lincoln s election the ignorance of Blind partisans was somewhat excusable for regarding it As a Republican War. Hence a Large number were almost ready to take up arms against what they deemed a War upon their party or its principles. In every Community however there were democrats of intelligence and patriotic Devotion to country who either went to the front As soldiers or staying at Home were ready to Aid in every possible manner in upholding the administration in its efforts to preserve the Union. There i were other democrats wha for the Sake of the offices and the positions of. Party leaders pandered to this false sentiment among the rank and file and were the ones really to be blamed for the bloodshed from mobs murders and other acts of breast of Dillman wounding him al most identically with Lacore. The soldiers then rushed in and Cap j tured the entire posse of guerrillas and quot deserters. I the writer Hereof was in pales i tine the Day of the capture and saw j the squad of soldiers the prisoners Acy in this part of the country than a and the wounded As they were j in any other and at that time there brought to town.

Upon the outbreak of the rebellion it was from this Section of Crawford county that came the first rumblings of opposition to putting it Down by the Force of arms and it was from among these roughs that came the first expression of same Man Beshears. Then there was the desperado Dillman who was the Captain of the gang and nine other deserters. The two wounded men were left at a hotel in Palestine with two soldiers to nurse and care for them. Dillman died in about ten Days but Lacore re i sympathy with treason and cheers covered sufficiently to go to his for Jeff Davis and the confederacy Home in about three weeks.

To these add that other element of a Lawless class which is Ever on the Alert for some pretext or excuse or cloak behind which they might ply their nefarious intent without quot a discovery and always ready to push someone else or some other us deposits a a design to the fore front As a i cover for their thievery or other Roguer and caring not if a life a amps i Capri fipps in the accomplishment of their designs. They dragged their betters into encouraging desertions from the Aimy resistance to enrolling officers to draft and other measures calculated to hinder the prosecution of the War for the gain that was ahead and for the detraction of officers of the Law from their own Lawless acts. And Many of these i men stand aghast today with shame i and wonder that they were so led on by these villains. But there were guerrilla a in the North As Well As in. The South those Days even if their numbers were less and they were i compelled to be More cautious. Crawford county had at different times some of As villainous characters quot As Ever Cut a Throat or scuttled a ship quot during the War that came upon the scene Here from no one knew where or seemed to care. Like water they readily found their level among that class of democrats spoken of who regarded the prosecution of War under a Republican administration As a War against their party acid they very readily fell in with quot tie John powder horns quot in planning to resist the draft in raids upon Olney to capture from the Provost marshal the enrolling papers the secret conclave and Midnight drills when the removal of Deputy marshals and enrolling officers were not Only discussed but All the preliminaries arranged. But when the quot John powder horns quot were conspicuous by their absence from the front. And when they were gone from those whom they had been leading astray the Money out of which they had duped these men was not the Only thing that they carried away. During the War and for Many years prior thereto in the Southeastern part of the county some three Miles Southeast of palest ii and extending on Down the Wabash River there was a Section of country known by the significant title of quot Devil s this Section had some hard characters within its Borders had been More than once represented in the Penitentiary and there were Many others who were unlike Caeser s wife. About every Case of horse stealing or larceny in the country was traceable to the Devil s neck either As the Home of the offender or where he had been harboured.

What s More Beautiful than a woman with pretty a pair of our Queen Quality White kid boots fess up get her a pair i Maxwell Cowles the foot fitters and effect their capture in the cause of the country but there were says and scouts who gave warning of the least approach of danger. And then these men were out and ready to Bush whack anyone who might Bear the suspicion of having authority for their arrest. This made the matter of their capture a problem of no easy solution. First they must be found and second they must a be arrested. Strategy had to be brought into requisition for they must be taken into custody. The matter of the arrest was finally placed in the hands of col. Richard w. Thompson then Provost marshal at Terre haute several of the deserters belonging to Indiana regiments. Col. Thompson had some forty or fifty soldiers of the Veteran Reserve corps at Sullivan ind., at the time and on the night of december 16, 1864 they received orders to proceed from Sullivan to j the Devil s neck and arrest certain parties named. At Midnight then a to two of these soldiers under com-1 Mand of Captain w. W. Jones Cross i de the Wabash River at Merom and j impressed the ferryman for the i double purpose of guide and to guard against the possibility of an alarm. The remainder of the Force under the command of a lieutenant i passed Down the Indiana Side of the i River. Captain Jones men proceeded to Palestine Landing on the River some two Miles below Palestine where j they arrested three persons and j then proceeded on to a rebel Hole i kept by a Man named Wallace. Here they forced quot been the door to the Shack and found four men in-1 Side each with a Navy revolver in i der his Pillow three rifles and Sev eral shot guns a pocket Book containing counterfeit Money a lot of letters from deserters and mysterious personages a lot of dry goods in a Roll a Bunch of keys Etc. The four men supposed to be deserters were arrested. The squad then went to the House of a Man named Dillman who had been a deserter for Mora than two years or More and was known As a very desperate character. They arrived about four a. M., surrounded the House and inquired who lived there. They received for an answer a command to Retreat or be shot. They then attempted to break open the Edckor which was barricaded by the women of the House while the men were preparing for Battle. It was finally forced open and Dillman fired with a Squirrel Rife the shot taking effect in the breast of a Soldier named Charles Lacore who belonged to a Pennsylvania regiment. Several shots were then fired by the soldiers from their Minnie rifles one of which took effect in the left advanced rate on Star and Union to $3.00 <2� per year begins saturday March 31st beginning Satui Day March 31st, the quot club rate of the Sullivan Union and the Terre haute daily Star will be advanced from $2.50 per year to .�?3.00 per year.
