Hon. L. B. Caswell's reminiscences

A severe winter

Waded through deep snow to school

A first student of Milton Academy

Mr. Caswell's first oration

Quits college course to study law

Oldest living Beloit alumnus

Mr. Caswell admitted to bar

Walked home 24 miles from college

Attends first law suit - ambition to become lawyer

How the defendant proved his innocence

Not as throughly educated

No chance to shirk

Not tied hand and foot

Not as honest now

Not wholly endorsed

Washington in 1859 - the nomination of Lincoln for President

Caswell and Clapp start first bank 'n Fort Atkinson

Grant's first big victory

People little realize the soldiers' sacrifice

Getting supplies to soldiers

Gov. Harvey drowns in river

Caswell serves in assembly 1863

Copperheadism hard to handle

Soldiers elected Lincoln

Caswell on war "board of enrollment"

How the draft was made

Lincoln said -

Great American legend - Lincoln
