Yankee Raider learned a lesson

“When the Union cavalry’s supplies ran short, Captain William Kent and his command foraged the plantations of Major … Bell and James Scott: both of the plantations were on Body Road (southwest of Elizabeth City).” (Elizabeth City & the Civil War, by Alex Christopher Meekins) Selby Scott, who lived on the same property and was a grandson of James Scott, told me this family story: During a raid a Yankee soldier put his hands on the window sill and peered into the house. One of the braver ladies inside then slammed the window down on the Yankee’s fingers. Meekins’ book gives credence to the story.
