Description"Hotel owner and political leader William H. Randolph was also killed during the war. A Deputy Provost Marshall responsible for enforcing the Civil War draft, he was shot in Blandinsville by draft resistor John Bond on November 1, 1864, and died the next day. His death led to the controversial post-Civil War trials of John Bond, for murder, and his brothers for conspiracy. No one was convicted, but his was the most famous murder case of the century in McDonough County." "McDonough County Historic Sites, " by John E. Hallwas, p. 13.
