The Daily Dispatch: August 4, 1862., [Electronic resource], Yankee outrages in Nansemond and Isle of Wight. (search)
arrested last Sunday at Windsor, Isle of Wight, and Alex. Ashburn, postmaster at Windson, and Robert R. Pinner, assistant postmaster, were arrested at the same time. In many instances the Lincoln thieves have swept everything from the premises they visited, not leaving the females and children of the family a pound of meat or a single horse. A perfect reign of terror prevails in some portions of Nansemond and Isle of Wight counties, and the people are leaving their homes by night, and secreting themselves in the forests during the day, so that they may escape the clutches of the invaders, and reach, if possible, the Confederate lines, which do not now extend beyond Blackwater. No more true or loyal people than those who are now beneath the despot's heel in that section live in the Confederate States, and they complain greatly that the Government does not extend them some protection. The loss to the Confederate States in bacon and lard in that section will be immense.
