Confederate Memoranda on arrest of George W. Smith, Augusta County, circa 1862.

George W. Smith.-Born in Albermarle County, Va.; lived in Augusta and Rockingham; volunteered; was sent to Harper's Ferry; was discharged by the surgeon of his regiment; went home and worked as a hand till the corn crop was laid by, and then went to hunt the soldiers; was taken up by some wagoners and brought here. This is the account this young man gives of himself. He is I think of feeble and deranged intellect. I would advise he be examined by a medical board, and if it be proper to do so, he be sent back to Augusta County.
