From the Richmond Whig, 4/7/1865
KILLED BY THE MAGAZINE EXPLOSION. - We have already stated
that several of the paupers at the City Alms House had been killed by the
blowing up of the Confederate (formerly city) magazine, situated in the northern
suburbs. The number of these unfortunate creatures that thus met an untimely and
horrid death is now ascertained to be eight. The Alms House is not a hundred
yards from the magazine, and the victims are understood to have been killed by
the concussion caused by the explosion.
