From the Richmond Dispatch, 8/21/1862
A Caution. - Five or six conical shot, fired from
the Tredegar works, where they were proving cannon, last week, fell among the
workmen employed on a quarry on the Danville Railroad, two miles and a half off.
We were shown one of these missiles which came near striking a man. We mention
this by way of caution.
