The Daily Dispatch: July 10, 1863., [Electronic resource], The Brutality of the enemy while in Stafford — murder of a man and his mother. (search)
r's night, see fire to the house and burnt it to the ground. The above record is a solemn truth, and any citizen in Stafford can bear witness to it. The foul deed was perpetrated by me from Sigel's Grand Reserve Division of the Army of the Potomac, and under the superintendence of an officer. Not content with destroying the things of time, these soldiers of "the best Government in the world" make a mockery of the solemn ones of eternity. At a little country church, near Chappawamsic creek, some Pennsylvania soldiers entered, and having found a dead hag in a state of decomposition placed it in the pulpit, and putting its paws upon the sacred desk bade it preach to the Secessionists. It there no Nemesis, no avenging God, for such as these? Cannot our brave Confederate leaders, nerved by a hatred of such detestable crimes, grant protection to citizens, who, devoted to the Southern cause, are so unfortunately situated as to be in the lines of the insolent adversary? Stafford.
