Confederate Memoranda on Elias Love, Fauquier County, Virginia. Circa 1861-1862

Elias Love.-Born in Londoun. Says he does not know for what he was arrested, but says his son left him in December and denies he knew where he went. Says he does not know now. Passed the pickets returning home from Leesburg without permission. Says his son was a teamster in our army; returned home, and on close examination says he thinks he intended going to the West. Says he has taken no part in this contest except to vote for the Union. Is willing to support the laws of his country but cannot tell whether he is for the Union or the Confederacy. Wishes to take the oath of allegiance to the country where he lives but cannot tell whether it is the Confederacy or the Union. He is obviously an intelligent man and quibbling about his allegiance. I recommend he be held as a prisoner.
