Southern Historical Society Papers, Volume 16. (ed. Reverend J. William Jones), Statement of Captain Milton Rouse in regard to the charge that he violated his parole. (search)
fficer, who, on a full understanding of the case, paroled me, and sent me through his pickets to Charlestown, returning me the horse and buggy. The night before the surrender of Harpers Ferry, my brother William and I were at Mr. Gardner's, and on the next morning we went together across the fields to see the battle which was generally expected. As soon as we saw the white flag raised we proceeded to Bolivar Heights, then in possession of the Confederates, where we met several members of my company. One of these, Mr. John S. Easterday, offered me his horse, which I accepted, and rode down to Harpers Ferry alone and unarmed. I did not pass through Bolivar, but by way of the Shenandoah, and remained unarmed during the day. I applied to General T. J. Jackson for exchange, and he referred me to General Hill. My exchange came some time after from Richmond. The whole story is false, as this plain statement will show. Milton Rouse, Avon Wood, Jefferson Co., W. Va., December, 1888.
