how about this

A blog of Nineteenth Century history, focusing, but not exclusively, on the American Civil War seen through the prism of personal accounts, newspaper stories, administrative records and global history.
A thousand tales. A miscellany. A maze of historical tangents.

A Killing in Swampoodle II

Washington matters,
The Washington correspondent of the Baltimore Sun has the following items in relation to affairs transpiring in that city:
Private Daniel Roberts, of company F. 26th regiment Pennsylvania volunteers, now confined in this city by the civil authorities under a charge of murder, has been dishonorably discharged the service of the United States by order of Gen. Mansfield.

-The Richmond Daily Dispatch: August 26, 1861.
