This collection consists of a single proclamation by Governor Tod, commemorating the service of and officially discharging one of the so-called "Squirrel Hunters," Frank Rockway of Clark County Ohio, 4 March 1863. In late August and early September 1862, southern Ohio was threatened with invasion by a Confederate force under General Kirby Smith at Richmond, Kentucky. Governor Tod called upon able-bodied men to form an impromptu militia to defend Cincinnati, to which some 15,000 men, subsequently officially designated the "Squirrel Hunters," responded. Rockway's discharge states that without the loyal response of the "Squirrel Hunters," "our dear state would have been invaded by a band of pirates determined to overthrow the best government on earth; our wives and children would have been violated and murdered, and our homes plundered and sacked. Your children, and your children's children, will be proud to know that you were one of this glorious band."
