During the Civil War Hubbard supported the Confederates and in 1862 the Unionists in Campbell County let loose a wave of political repression.  Home Guards scoured Campbell County to apprehend anyone suspected of favoring session.  This included Hubbard Helm.  He was sent to Camp Chase, Ohio in mid 1862.

ARRESTS BY THE PROVOST MARSHAL-Yesterday afternoon, Marshal Gassaway arrested J R Hallam, H D Helm, J P Jackson, the two Winstons and three others and placed them in confinement in the Barracks.  Eight other prisoners, captured near Falmouth on suspicion of bridge burning were also brought to the Garrison yesterday, but subsequently sent forward to Camp Chase.
