The Daily Dispatch: November 3, 1862., [Electronic resource], Effect of Union shells. (search)
Effect of Union shells. On the day of the engagement at Charlestown, in which the Howitzer Battalion of this city greatly distinguished itself, over one hundred shells from the enemy's guns fell within the corporate limits of the town without wounding a single citizen, and with no essential damage to property. The only houses that were made to feel sensibly the shock of the enemy's fire belonged to Mrs. Rebecca Hunter, a strong Union lady, and mother in-law of the notorious David H. Strother, the Port Crayon of Harper. Her fine residence, near the centre of the town, had one of the chimneys knocked off to the comb of the roof, and another house of hers, at the eastern end of town, received some injury.
