At 2:00 p.m. on June 25 martial law was established when the Salem Mayor called out four companies of the Second Corps Cadets and Company H of the Eighth Regiment. Colonel Frank A. Graves and Adjutant Julian I. Chamberlain commanded the Eighth Regiment; Colonel Charles R. Ropes was in charge of the Second Corps Cadets. Eventually, officers from every militia in Massachusetts responded to the call for help; militia were on duty until July 7, 1914.
