From the Richmond Dispatch, 8/5/1862
Runaways Caught. – Six negro men, employed by the
Fredericksburg Railroad Company, were taken yesterday by a squad of cavalry,
while making tracks for the Yankee lines below Fredericksburg. They had provided
themselves for the journey, and were making good time when overhauled. They were
brought to Richmond and put in Castle Godwin.
