Argument of Samuel M. Harrington, Jr. of Wilmington, Delaware, and Colonel S. M. Bowmen, U. S. a free pdf Excerpt from Argument of Samuel M. Harrington, Jr. Of Wilmington, Delaware, and Colonel S. M. Bowmen, U. S. A: In Defense of Edwin Wilmer, Provost Marshal of Delaware, Before a Court Martial in Washington City, D. C., June 2d, 1865 I should feel that I had not performed my duty, if I failed to make my profound acknowledgments for the courtesy, indulgence, and patience of the Court, and for the frankness, fairness, and kindness of the Judge Advocate to both the accused and his counsel. Since the commencement of the late rebellion, now happily ended by the military power of the Government upon the basis of Freedom and Union, there is no State where opinion was so evenly divided and so warm and antagonistic without breaking into open war, as the State of Delaware. Nowhere was the line between the supporters and the opponents of the administration and the war to suppress rebellion, more clearly and distinctly drawn. A public officer was sure to meet the condemnation of one side, while he was also likely to offend many of the other. Perhaps the most delicate, unpleasant, and unpopular duties were those of the several provost marshals, who were the instruments of the Government to raise the armies for its defence. This duty often involved the necessity of requiring that unwilling men should either themselves perform military duty in the field, or should, at considerable outlay, he represented by another for that purpose. It can readily, therefore, be seen how such duties affecting so closely the personal safety or the pecuniary ability or the business circumstances of the whole community, would naturally excite unfavorable impressions and very often unjust complaints. If a quota was deemed too large- if a credit too small- if a draft was not delayed- if ft draft was made at all- if an exemption was not granted or a volunteer not accepted, there was always some one to complain, and under a mistaken sense of personal wrong and injustice to publish complaints far and wide, and to excite hostility and bitterness of feeling. In addition to this there was a large class who, determined not to be reconciled, under any circumstances, to conscription, would array the feelings and prejudices of the masses against the party chosen by the Government to carry out its policy. No man, perhaps, in the entire Provost Marshal's Department, had a more trying, vexations, annoying, and unpleasant position than the Delaware Provost Marshal. With the entire legislation of the State against him, surrounded by hundreds of men whose party interest it was to embitter persons against him as the embodiment of all that sought to snatch them forcibly from their families, and to send them where danger and wounds and death filled every moment with pain and suffering, how could he be just and faithful without giving offence? how could he fail to make enemies who would pursue him with intensest bitterness? To have performed these arduous and perplexing duties with unwavering justice and unimpeachable integrity, with active loyalty and constant attention, would have been a success that few men could have dared to hope for- but from the beginning to the close such was the aim and conscientious purpose of this accused.
