From the Richmond Examiner, 8/4/1864

SENT AWAY TO SALISBURY. Yesterday fifty-three of the prisoners held in Castle Thunder were sent away to Salisbury, North Carolina. The lot included twenty-seven Yankee deserters, twenty-four negroes and two Confederate soldiers. Among them was a very bright mulatto, Emma Carroll, who was delivered recently of a fine child. The child was christened Georgianna Washington Alexandria, in honour of the former commandant of the Castle Thunder post. The child went with the mother, tugging at her breastworks, to share with her the confinement at Salisbury.
