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.
