The Daily Dispatch: August 30, 1864., [Electronic resource], The burning of
Hon. 's residence. (search)
The burning of Hon. Mr. Boteler's residence. A correspondent of a Northern paper denounces Hunter's barbarity in Virginia; and referring to the burning of Hon. A. R. Boteler's house, publishes the following letter of Miss Boteler: Shepherdstown, Jefferson County, Virginia, July 20--Wednesday night. My Dear Sisters:
izzie, her three little children and I, being at home, fifteen Federal soldiers of the First New York cavalry, under Captain Martindale, came with orders from General Hunter to burn everything under roof on the places of A. R. Boteler and Edmund J. Lee.--They came to us first, and in twenty minutes after their arrival it would hav s better, but their life-ties were formed and riveted there.
I'll write more in the morning, when fitted for it. How many will be sorry to hear all this!
I read Hunter's order myself — had it in my hands and tried to keep it to send papa, but it was taken out of my hands. Your devoted sister, Tippe.
