Memoranda on Solomon Banks, tanken near Bethel Virginia circa 1861.

Solomon Banks.-A free negro of very light complexion; was arrested near Bethel on the day of the battle. He says that he just returned from Pig's Point where he had been at work on the fortifications; denies all complicity with and sympathy with the enemy, and says that he supposes he was taken for a white man. There is nothing before me to attach any suspicion to him except the mere fact of his arrest and commitment, and I recommend his discharge unless some further evidence be adduced against him.
