    Thanks for your interesting magazine.
    On Ron Soodalter's "Fury in Vermont", the St. Alban's raiders were not "each wearing a Confederate uniform" (Page 26) when they began robbing the three banks. According to local historian Carl E. Johnston (The St. Albans Raid: 19 October 1864), "According to Young's memoirs, the men were told that they were to wear some part of a Confederate uniform, such as a button, or part of a uniform that would identify them as a southern soldier."

    On page 30, the author says that the raiders burned a bridge at Shelburne as they fled (Page 30). Actually, the town was Sheldon. They tried to set fire to a hay wagon crossing a covered bridge, again using Greek Fire. However the fire was extinguished by the Reverend Henry Hawley, a methodist minister who lived near the bridge, who put it out with buckets of water.
    Otherwise a good report on this generally ignored incident.

    As a former resident of St Albans, VT I enjoyed this article. I believe, however, that the raiders were captured near Frelighsburg Quebec rather than Phillipsburg Ontario
