Maple Leaf escapees' routes - Part 2 (revised)

Posted by Bruce Long on March 24, 2015 at 6:00pm 2 Comments

When the Maple Leaf captors went ashore off False Cape, VA, their first thought after electing leaders was to determine where they were. Spying a light on a low island nearby, two waded through the shallow water towards the light. It was a house located on Long Island. It wasn't just any house; it was the house of Major Edgar Burroughs on Long Island. Burroughs had been resigned his commission in the Confederate army due to illness and returned to his home on Long Island in Princess Anne,…

The Maple Leaf escapees' routes to Richmond - Part 1

Posted by Bruce Long on March 22, 2015 at 10:00pm 0 Comments

The officers left the Maple Leaf around False Cape in Virginia Beach. They passed a house and the woman living there, whose husband was an absent Confederate soldier, told them how to escape. This was Major Edgar Burroughs’ house on Long Island. On the way south down the beach, they ran into the McHorney brothers of Coinjock at Deal Island. (The McHorney’s were probably there to smuggle salt.) Benjamin F. McHorney had served on the CSS Raleigh in 1861 and 1862.

Local stories from 1862-1863 period

Posted by Bruce Long on March 11, 2015 at 9:32pm 1 Comment

I'm looking for local stories of the war in the Albemarle region. Partisan Ranger, Home Guard, buffalo - all are of interest. I've read the stories in Pugh's "300 Years Along the Pasquotank", so I don't need to hear them repeated, but different versions and ones I haven't read are of great interest. The Albemarle was a hot-bed of action in 1863.
