Best 1917 Ww I Headline Newspaper Kill Draft Dodgers As Us Traitors In Oklahoma

Please visit our store at the link directly below for HUNDREDS of HISTORICAL NEWSPAPERS on sale or at sale:

SEE PHOTO-----COMPLETE, ORIGINALCivil War NEWSPAPER,the Ft Dodge Messenger (IA) dated Aug 4, 1917.

This newspaper contains a bold banner headline of police in Oklahoma City,Oklahoma searching for WW I "draft dodgers" in that stateso as to kill them for opting out of the WW Imilitary draft in the US !!

The Selective Service Act of 1917 was carefully drawn to remedy the defects in the Civil War system by allowing exemptions for dependency, essential occupations, and religious scruples and by prohibiting all forms of bounties, substitutions, or purchase of exemptions. In 1917 and 1918 some 24 million men were registered and nearly 3 million inducted into the military services, with little of the overt resistance that characterized the Civil War.

In the United States during World War I, the word "slacker" was commonly used to describe someone who was not participating in the war effort, especially someone who avoided military service, an equivalent of the later term "draft dodger". Attempts to track down such evaders were called "slacker raids."

This is the most dramatic banner headline I have seen on the feelings of some in the US towards draft dodgers during WW I !!
