Vignette of Fredericksburg Occupied

From Betty Herndon Maury's diary, entry dated May 22, 1862:

Nannie Belle was playing on the pavement yesterday evening when a soldier accosted her and asked if she would not go down the street with him and let him buy her some candy. She replied "No I thank you. Yankee candy would choke me." He seemed much amused.
