From the Richmond Dispatch, 2/6/1862, p. 2, c. 6
Arrival of a German Yankee. - The Central train that
arrived yesterday morning brought, among other passengers, a German named Louis
Boden, a private in the Eight Regiment New York State Militia, who was recently
captured by our pickets on the line of the Potomac. He was lodged in one of the
military prisons. Boden can hardly speak a half dozen words of English, and has
been in this country but a few months.
