Civil War Draft Registration in Howard Co, IN, 1863-1865 includes:
SubDist. No. 49. James M. Adamson, age 44, farmer, b. NC - Class 2 [he would certainly be the right age and a Moses Adamson was listed on the same page, also from Howard Co]
Note on Ancestry.com about this draft:
This is a collection of lists of Civil War Draft Registrations. There were four drafts between 1863 and 1865, which included 3.175 million records. Historically, the 1863 draft was one of the most tenuous moments in the Union outside of the battles fought on Northern soil. Most of the concern was due to the draft riots that took place in New York in 1863.
These records include 631 volumes of registries and are basically lists of individuals who registered for the draft. The records are split into two different classes, Class I are those aged 20-35 as well as those 36-45 and unmarried. Class II is everyone else that registered.
