Hi

here below you can see the text that can be read at the the Wayside Exhibit at Honey Springs about the 3rd Wisconsin cavalry.
New cavalry recruits are promised to receive "a bounty of 100$ dollars and a farm at the close of the war".

So, my questions are :
-did they get that?
-Do you know other recruiters that promised that and the promise was honored?
