From the Richmond Examiner, 6/27/1864

YANKEE IMPUDENCE REBUKED. - The impudence of some of the Yankee prisoners brought to Richmond is unbearable. Friday, as the last instalment was passing along Cary street, one of them; true to the instinct and nature of the whole race, made a remark disparaging of the character of several ladies standing on the sidewalk. The brute was instantly knocked down by a blow from a musket in the hands of one of the guard, and had to be carried along by some of his comrades. Served him right, though the contents of the musket would have been a better dose than the butt of it.
