A Little Union Scout

Book cover
excerpt from the book..A young lady, just returned from college, was making a still-hunt inthe house for old things--old furniture, old china, and old books. Shehad a craze for the antique, and the older things were the moreprecious they were in her eyes. Among other things she found an oldscrap-book that her mother and I thought was safe under lock and key.She sat in a sunny place and read it page by page, and, when she hadfinished, her curiosity was aroused. The clippings in the oldscrap-book were all about the adventures of a Union scout whose namewas said to be Captain Frank Leroy. The newspaper clippings that hadbeen preserved were queerly inconsistent. The Northern and Westernpapers praised the scout very highly, and some of them said that ifthere were more such men in the army the cause of the Union wouldprogress more rapidly; whereas the Southern papers, though paying ahigh tribute to the dash and courage of the scout, were highly abusive.He was "one of Lincoln's hirelings" and as villanous as he was bold.
