A Rebel Spie Was Taken

[21 October 1861]

 

Monday 21st

 

Our company were on guard duty today. A rebel spie was taken today and put under arrest and taken to Washington by two of our boys. It is pretty cold and it is going to rain tonight. There is a big fight going on across the river we have had marching orders.
