From the Richmond Enquirer, 11/17/1862
TWO DESERTERS and one prisoner, from the Federal army below
Petersburg, were brought over on yesterday and lodged in the Libby prison. They
were each anxious to take the oath of allegiance to the Confederate States, and
denounced in the strongest terms the Federal administration and army. One of the
deserters says that he is a Southern man, but was impressed in Maryland and
forced into the service.
