Fordham University Press

Supporters of the war testified repeatedly that their property had been threatened with destruction to keep them quiet. While it cannot be proven conclusively, there are intriguing clues that this was attempted in several cases. The marshal of the Nineteenth District considered the use of federal intervention to be “the unanimous sentiment of the loyal inhabitants of this County.” Colonel Hugh S. Campbell could not induce citizens to help arrest deserters and he could not accomplish his objective with so few deputies and detectives. If the “reign of terror” were to end, it would have to be accomplished by the use of military force.
