Washburn Co. Military Registration List, 1917


City of Spooner Registrants

-Source:  Spooner Advocate, Spooner, Washburn Co., WI, Friday, 08 Jun 1917, page 1

The patriotism shown all over the United States Tuesday [05 Jun 1917] by the young Americans should convince the pacifists and all others who have obstructed the plans of President Wilson, that this nation is not divided, but on the contrary stands behind the president.  Over ten million went to the registration boards and signed up in defense of their country and homes.  At no place in the nation was there any marked demonstration by the pro-Germans or their sympathizers.  The very few that used their tongues too freely were placed under arrest and will have plenty of time during their incarceration to reflect on their disloyal actions.  Tuesday's registration is the best demonstration of patriotism ever shown by the American people and if the Kaiser has carried the idea that the people of the United States are divided or lax in their devotion to their country, he had better forget it.  If he does not forget it, it will only be a few months before he will wish he had.  The American people have no war with the German people.  They will fight for the liberation of the people of Germany from the autocratic domination of Prussianism that has been their curse.  The American people know that our German citizens are as desirable, as industrious and as patriotic as any of our citizenship, and our Germans are now realizing more each day that to defeat the Kaiser means the liberation of their relatives and friends in Germany from the curse of Prussian militarism, that has been grind (unreadable portion) homes and curtailing their liberties.  The patriotism displayed Tuesday was not confined to any particular locality, it was in the air and the whole American spirit of loyalty seemed to be beaming forth as never before.

Washburn County came to the front with a registration of 841, which is far above the amount estimated by the most sanguine estimators.  In the city [Spooner] there were 221, of these 97 claimed exemption and 105 no exemption.  There were 17 aliens, only one of the enemy and he has his first papers.  The registration board were Geo. B. Sage, W. H. Cleary, O. S. Johnson, G. H. Ross.
