Sept. 1862 newspapers posted

Some Hagerstown newspaper pages have been posted at this link; click on the top item under the heading "Featured Collections." Has this description of Bragg changed?
Half the men would desert to-day, if they thought they could get away in safety; but Bragg keeps a closer watch on them than he does on the enemy. He is a coarse and vulgar tyrant, and I should not be surprised to hear any time of his having been shot by his own men. He drinks to excess, as do all these officers. He quarrels with those around him.

It's a fun site, but the server crashed while I was trying to read the material. Good luck.
