Excerpt from The National Tribune Scrap Book: Stories of the Camp, March, Battle, Hospital and Prison Told by Comrades
After the defeat of Gen. Pope at Bull Run, and the retreat of his army into Maryland and the District of Columbia, the Southern officers and soldiers believe... d that the time was at hand to invade Maryland, and give its citizens the opportunity and the backing necessary for them to take the State out of the Union and join it to the Southern Confederacy.
The Confederate soldiers had been thoroughly saturated with the idea that the Maryland people would welcome them and join its ranks in large numbers.
