Why were the WWII draft registration cards for 1877-1897-born men destroyed for the Southern US?
Why were the WWII draft registration cards for 1877-1897-born men destroyed for a lot of mostly Southern US states? Here is what I'm talking about here: https://www.ancestry.com/search/collections/1002/
"The original draft registration cards for the following states were destroyed several years ago and were never microfilmed before they were destroyed. Therefore, there will never be records for these states in this database.
- New Mexico
- North Carolina
- South Carolina
Why exactly were the relevant WWII draft registration cards for these US states destroyed? Does anyone here know the answer to this question of mine?
