From the Richmond Whig, 3/8/1864, p. 1, c. 3

NEGRO SOLDIERS CAPTURED. - Four Yankee negro soldiers, captured in James City county, were brought to this city yesterday, and delivered at the Libby, where they were distributed, as far as they would go, into the solitary cells of the Yankee officers captured during the recent raid. This is a taste of negro equality, we fancy, the said Yankee officers will not fancy overmuch. The negroes represent themselves as James W. Corn, company C, 5th U. S. Vols.; P. F. Lewis, company I, 5th U. S. Vols.; R. P. Armistead, company H, 6th U. S. Vols.; Jno. Thomas, ditto.
