TRUTH !!
Both in the North and in the South, the various conscription laws allowed
the wealthy to avoid military service. In the North, a potential draftee
could hire a substitute to take his place. In the South, any man who owned
20 or more slaves was exempt. Soldiers greatly resented these exemptions,
and began calling the conflict, "a rich man's war and a poor man's fight."
The military draft was so unpopular that riots broke out in New York City in
July, 1863 resulting in the deaths of more than 100 people.
