Confederate Memoranda on B. F. Copeland, taken Manassas, Virginia. Circa 1861-1862

B.F. Copeland.-Born Maine; has lived in Missouri, Iowa and Illinois. Is a carpenter. Says he was working at Washington last winter. Was promised a job a Alexandria. Went up to see Bull Run; was taken prisoner. Citizen of the United States, but manifests a desire to take the oath of allegiance to Confederate States if he can thereby get work and get back to the North. I recommend he be held as a prisoner of war.
