"Arrival of Federal Prisoners in Houston," newsclipping

Description

This article describes the arrival of federal prisoners in Houston, including a colonel, captains, lieutenants, 350 non-commissoned officers, and several "negroes" (a Negro in a sailor's uniform was a special occasion for sport for Confederate boys). The writer notes that the prisoners look healthy, and had remarked that they were treated well by their captors. The writer observes that despite the excitement and interest wrought by the "novel" occasion of federal prisoners marching down Main St., Houston, the crowd of Confederates conducted themselves with moderation toward the prisoners. On the microfilm, there is unfortunately a tear through the middle of this article.
