A student from the South during the Civil War
Some of the Southern gal's parents were astounded when they were told that Oramel's intense loyalty to the Union cause made all the students make a declaration to the North. Thismay have resulted in some attendance drop. The Ladies Loyal Union League, with a strong book lock and key, held the names of members and their resolutions; however, most of the pages were blank. Oramel enthusiastically shot a cannon on the front grounds of the school every time the Union North had a victory. - Cindy Lee Corriveau "Images of America: Salem, Connecticut"
