Treasure Chest Thursday

This is my ggg grandfather, Morris Lesser's, U.S Civil War Draft Registration record. (He's the last entry on the page).

Name: Morris Liessar
Living: 40 Cherry St,
Age: 40 (which is completely wrong because he was born in 1828 and 40 years old (in 1864) makes his birth year 1823)
Occupation: Barber
Status: Married
Country of Origin: Germany

On the bottom:
Station: Headquarters 4th Cong. District of New York
Date: July 10, 1864

I was not expecting to find this yesterday. I was so excited to have finally found someone in the civil war. My dad's family gets more interesting by the minute.
