Stanton Guards

In 1862 the Military Governor of Tennesee, Andrew Johnson, had three citizens of that state, Genaral Burrows, General Harding and Judge Jo Conn Guild arrested for treason. These men were confined at Mackinaw Island until September of 1862 at which time they were released.

To guard these prisoners, in April of 1862, Grover S. Wormer of Detroit was authorized to organize and equip a company of Infantry, which was mustered into the service of the United States on May 9, 1862. On September 9, 1862 after the release of the prisoners they were returned to Detroit and disbanded.
