From the Richmond Sentinel, 5/7/64

Horrible Accident. – Yesterday evening, about 2 o’clock, a negro belonging to Mr. James H. Grant, while at work in the Confederate States Arsenal, was caught in the gearing of some machinery, and so dreadfully injures that it is not supposed he can possibly recover. His right arm was torn off at the shoulder and the right leg was mangled in such a manner as to require immediate amputation.
