Herald of Freedom and Torch Light, Sept 1862 (2-3C War news: Washington County)

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


Arrival of the Maryland Brigade.

The 1st, 4th, 7th and 8th Maryland Regiments, under command of the heroic Kenly, who is now Brigadier General, arrived in Hagerstown on Saturday last.

The Companies of Capts. Mobley and Anderson, of this town, belong to the 7th Regiment. Our brave boys look remarkably well, having all the appearance of hardy, veteran soldiers, and have returned to aid in defending their homes from the invader's foul embraces. May God bless them and give them victory on every battle field.
