One hundred fifty years ago . . .

Battle-field plunder.

--A large lot of battle field plunder, consisting of overcoats, fine blankets, axes, muskets, pistols, and rifles, were recovered yesterday by the detectives of the Eastern District from the house of a man in New Kent. The possessor resisted the seizure with all the force he could command. The articles were brought to Richmond and stowed in the Government warehouse. 

. . . the Richmond Daily Dispatch, November 12, 1862
