The Daily Dispatch: July 12, 1864., [Electronic resource], The Fredericksburg citizen prisoners. (search)
y. After a confinement of several weeks these citizens were released through the exertions of friends in this quarter, and started on their return home. In passing through Washington they found everybody in the highest state of excitement, and on inquiring the cause they were informed that the rebels had made their appearance in Maryland. During this time a considerable body of troops departed from Washington for the point said to have been invaded, but our informant could not say whether they were regulars or new volunteers. The exchanged prisoners were taken down the Potomac in a gunboat, and on approaching Aquia Creek they found the wharf at that point on fire; so they were landed at Split Rock, a short distance below. From thence they made their way to Fredericksburg, where they were received with a great demonstration of joy, and such a scene of hilarity ensued as has not been witnessed there since the old town was made an object of the vengeance of a malignant foe.
