Michigan

Address of Col. Isaac D. Toll

or one engendered in the interest of any section, or any system of labor? If the wish of those desirous of the extension of slavery was the motive for thought, expression, or action, it was a deduction not german to the premises, the government being accountable for the unavoidable protection of violated rights, but not responsible for collateral objects of the adherents of any peculiar dogma. Such an unwarrantable charge is a libel upon the commonwealth—a libel upon the brave men of Michigan and their coadjutors, who went forth to do, and die if need be, for love of country—country from shore to shore. The institutions of the grand galaxy of states won by your toils bore no fruit save that of the tree of freedom, deeply rooted in the soil of untold millions, the motives of men to the contrary notwithstanding. I cannot do less than here give an outline of the record of our state in the war with Mexico, however imperfectly. In May, 1846, our governor was notified by the War Department of the United States to enroll a regiment of volunteers, to be held in readiness for service whenever demanded.
