From the Richmond Dispatch, 8/18/1862

Last of the Mohicans. The Petersburg train arriving Saturday night brought largely over 300 Yankee prisoners, being the last of those for some months past confined at Salisbury, N. C. Included in the above were five commissioned officers. Maj. Godwin, who went from Richmond to take charge of the prison, like his predecessor, Maj. Gibbs, has raised a splendid regiment of true-hearted North Carolinians, who are nearly ready for the field.
