From the Richmond Examiner, 5/16/1864

PRISONERS OF WAR. - On Saturday ten prisoners of war were entered at the Libby from Mechanicsville, and five from Drewry's Bluff, captured in an attempt to surprise and take one of the outer works at the Bluff on Friday night.

Ninety six prisoners, taken at Beaver Dam, in the Wilderness, and Spotsylvania Court House, were received from Drewry's Bluff and Bottom's bridge. As before intimated, the great bulk of the prisoners taken by General Lee are being sent South, via Lynchburg.
