Concerning enlistments, the "Raccon Roughs" didn't follow standard policy. The usual procedure called for the company captain to make an offer of service to the governor of his state. These men simply organized and left home expecting to "sign on" in Georgia or wherever. Being peristent they eventually were accepted. Other impulsive companies were less fortunate, went home and disbanded.
In 1861 volunteers enlisted in state service first. That happened when Governor Moore accepted a captain's offer of service. Officers and men were ordered into camp, and when enough companies arrived, elections for field officers were held. Governor Moore sent a telegraph to the War Department in Richmond with an offer (AKA tender) of service. When the Confederate government accepted Governor Moore's offer for service members were enrolled in Confederate service and muster rolls sent to Richmond.
If the process sounds complicated, some men who wished to raise companies or larger commands didn't understand, either. Transporting, feeding and supplying that many men out of one's own pocket could be expensive. Until a company arrived in camp under a governor's orders, payment for all company needs had be done by members or company patrons. Sometimes the payments were reimbursed, but transportation and meals could not be paid by means of promises.
