Record #:
IN 1846, requisitions for volunteers for the Mexican-American war went to governors of all states. Governor William A. Graham issued a proclamation calling North Carolina to raise a volunteer infantry regiment. During the summer of 1846, more than three times the volunteers needed, most of them from the western part of the state, offered their services.
