From the Richmond Dispatch, 11/12/1862, p. 1, c. 4

The Yankee Raid on Fredericksburg. Yesterday five more Abolition prisoners were brought to Richmond from Fredericksburg, having been caught during the raid of the enemy on the latter place Sunday. Singular to say, all five were Sergeants. One of them, a chap from Ohio, seemed to have fared very badly at the hands of our men. His head was embellished with seven sword cuts, and presented an uncomfortable appearance. He said it was more owing to his own skill than the disposition of the rebels that he did not fare worse.
