From the Richmond Enquirer, 3/7/1862
ARRESTING MILITARY STRAGGLERS. - The Provost Marshal's
military police were again busy yesterday in arresting stragglers from the
camps. - The greater portion of those questioned had the necessary passports
from their commanders. Those less fortunate were escorted to Castle Godwin. -
These vigorous measures of the Provost Marshal has diminished very sensibly the
number of uniformed idlers in Richmond.
