A quote from a letter penned by Susan Emeline Jeffords Caldwell to Lycurgus Washington Caldwell, April 17 1863.

"Lieut Payne rode in town Thursday with a Yankee Lieut, having captured him the other side of the river. On coming to the River they found the river too high to cross, so they would have to swim. Lieut.Payne made the first attempt,and would have been drowned had not the yankee Lieut jumped in and saved him. (How generous! Noble hearted yankee he was indeed, one with a soul has been left in our midst.)
