Confederate Memoranda on Thomas N. Fisher, Fairfax County Virginia. Circa 1861-1862.

Thomas N. Fisher.-Aged seventeen. Born Loudon; moved to Fairfax. Says when arrested he was coming in to volunteer in Bob Raford's cavalry. Passed our lines (not knowing it) in the night; was arrested. It appeared on evidence before me this boy is warm in the Southern cause. On two occassions he borrowed a gun from a neighbor and scouted on the Potomac to get a shot at the Yankees who were expected to cross. He wishes to go either into a cavalry company or the Eighth Virginia, as his relations are in that regiment. He is a brave and true Southern boy and I hope his wishes will be gratified.
