General Court. Act amending an act to regulate the militia, 1825
SEE ALSO 51661, 51662, 51665 In 1825, the General Court passed an addition to the Act to regulate the militia. Each Commander was to secure lists
of members of the militia and those eligible to be members and use the lists to notify members of trainings and other events which they needed to
attend. There were fines for not responding to the notices. Senior officers were to conduct such trainings or events. Complaints about failures or
unbecoming behavior among the militia could lead to fines; half of the those fines went to the units, the other half to the complainant. Senior officers
could call meetings to elect new officers, but no more than twice a year. Judge Advocates were to keep records of all proceedings within their
jurisdiction. If militia men were unable to pay fines, they were covered by the "Act for the relief of poor prisoners ..." If a militia man followed all
the rules for a year, he could ask for a certificate exempting him from the poll tax that year. Each town had to supply one-quarter of a pound of good
powder made into blank cartridges for each militia parade in the town. The Act of February 11, 1823, was repealed. (Digitized from a microfilm copy
of title originally held by the Massachusetts State Library).
