Hornellsville (New York) Tribune, November 12, 1863
The prisoners taken make the usual brags of how Meade will soon be whipped, and give out mysterious hints as to his being drawn into a trap. The Rebels confirm the reported destitution of their army, and the North Carolina troops captured declare that they will not again take up arms. The North Carolinians and the LouisianaTigers had a fight in the cars, on their way to town, upon this topic the former boldly saying they were heartily sick of the war and did not wish to be exchanged. The latter called them "paltroons," and at length the two parties came to blows.
