Description: Reluctant men are being cajoled and persuaded to join the Union Army at a recruitment office at City Hall Park, New York City, April 1861; Bounties of $300 and more were paid to such hesitant volunteers, a federal inducement that broadly failed since many of these mercenaries went to training camps only to desert in the thousands, to return to another city, re-enlist, receive another bounty payment, and continuously repeat their scam, these tricksters called "bounty-jumpers';"
