Herald of Freedom and Torch Light, Sept 1862 (2-1B War news: Return from exile)

Herald of Freedom and Torch Light, Hagerstown, Md., September 1862, page 2 Click on the MEDIA ITEMS below for more information


OUR Thanks,—During our exile from home, we remained in Chambersburg, together with more than a hundred other refugees. Although the people there were greatly alarmed during our sojourn in their midst, and busily engaged in removing a large proportion of their effects into the interior of the State, as well as preparing to defend their homes from the impending invasion of the rebels, a number of them took time to show us marks of hospitality and kindness. Among these we may mention Mr. J. S. Nixon, the enterprising and successful druggist, Mr. Wampler and family, Messrs. Huber, McIntyre, Seibert and Fisher, the latter the worthy and gentlemanly proprietor of the Eagle Hotel, at whose house we stopped. A favor to men who have been driven from their homes, however slight, aye, even a kind word, is deeply appreciated and gratefully remembered, and thus we shall ever feel towards the gentlemen referred to.
