Form 31 was issued to individuals who provided a substitute (usually for a cash payment) to serve in his place in the U.S. Army during the Civil War. Many young men of prominent families avoided military service by hiring substitutes. Llewellyn Powers, a Republican, served five terms in the Maine Legislature and was Governor of Maine from 1897 - 1901.Show Details
