From the Richmond Whig, 4/10/1865

CONFEDERATE PRISONERS, to the number of eight hundred or one thousand, have been received in the city within the past forty-eight hours and consigned to the Libby. More than half of Pickett’s division has been brought in or captured, and the country between Richmond and Amelia county is said to be full of Confederate soldiers, nearly all of them Virginians, making their way to their homes.

The Castle is used as a receptacle for citizen prisoners, of whom quite a number are gathered there.
