Click on the MEDIA ITEMS below for more information


Brother Against Brother.—It is stated that three of the sons of Mr. William Robertson, formerly of this town, were in the late engagement at Winchester, one being on the rebel side and two on the Federal. It is stated is the Mail that the brothers recognised each other during the engagement and that in the skirmishes which succeeded it, the Confederate, whose name was William, was killed. The Mail exclaims “is not this civil war most horrible?” Certainly it is, and we presume you begin to think that it would have been better to have lived under Mr. Lincoln’s rule four years, than to have inaugurated such a war. Don’t you?
