The mere facts of payment by a State of officer's pay and allowances
to a man while engaged in recruiting or organizing troops, and
the reimbursement of the State by the United States under the
act of July 27, 1861, are not sufficient to show that he had the
status of an officer, or to enable him to count the time he was so
paid in making up the nine months' service required by law to
entitle him to veteran bounty under joint resolution of January
13, 1864, on a subsequent enlistment. If he was not enlisted or
commissioned he had no military status while so serving. 441.
