Confederate Memoranda about L. L. Widgen, Richmond, Virginia. 1862

L. L. Widgen-Says that he is a New Yorker by birth but a resident of Richmond, where he enlisted in Peyton's artillery, now under General Magruder. He says he has been tried and punished for resisting his captain, but he does not know and there is nothing before me to show cause why he has been imprisoned. It seems to me that his captain ought to be required to account satisfactorily for his imprisonment or take him back to duty.
