LAMOILLE NEWSDEALER: APRIL 19, 1861
Reuben Cleveland, who has of late been in the employ of R.S. Page, of this village, on hearing of the attack on Fort Sumter, was so filled with a desire to be with its defenders, that he could not work, and all day Tuesday he sat about the premises of Mr. Page, mourning over his inability to participate in the fight in defense of the “Stars and Stripes.” In the evening, he told Mr. Page that he wanted to “settle” as he intended to embrace the first opportunity to enlist in the federal service. At noon on Wednesday, he took his valise and started south, on foot, through the snow, which was falling fast at the time.
