The practical side was very simple. One went along to the nearest recruitment centre. I just wonder, however, whether you mean 'how could people enlist' from a moral point of view, or something like that. If so, please indicate. It would also be helpful to say which country or countries you have in mind. In the European countries (except Britain up to 1916) military service was complusory for most able-bodied adult men.

What best describes how the North and South enlisted their armies during the Civil War?

The Southern army was not as organized as the North. The North had special stations where people could enlist. They also had a set age that you had to be to enlist in the army (without much effect). The South was much less organized. In the South as long as you could hold a rifle you could join the army. There were no booths where you could enlist. To enlist all you had to do is go to a military camp or base of operations and tell them you wanted to fight. Then they would hand you a rifle and some gear and you were off to battle.
