A Trophy

Home News, January 11, 1862

A couple of female rebels - shame upon a disloyal woman! - recently crossed the Ohio from Belleville, Virginia, to Reedsville, Meigs County, sporting the rebel flag in the form of aprons. The sight was more than three of our loyal Buckeye girls could stand, and they forthwith captured and confiscated the aforesaid contraband goods, despite the resistance of the rebels. Bravo for the Meigs girls. The aprons were divided and sent to the boys from that county in Camp Putnam, and also to the Marietta Editors, as the Telegraph says, but they failed to reach the latter.
