    Seeking Confederate notification of conscription & substitutes

    natalie lovins Wayfarer

      Hi,  How would a conscripted Confederate soldier learn that they were conscripted? Was it a letter, or did they come to your house or something like that? I would like as many details as possible, please. Also, what is the process a conscripted soldier went through to provide their substitute to the military during the Civil War?
