Deserter Shot
On Friday last, private John H. Thompson, of Com. C, 1st Ohio cavalry, who was found guilty by court-martial of desertion from his company, going over to Mosby's notorious gang, and frequently depredating, either with the enemy or alone, on the persons and property of Union men in the vicinity of Chain Bridge and other places, was publicly executed on the grounds adjacent to the Sickles' barracks, near Alexandria. The execution was attended with the usual martial ceremonies, and was witnessed by a large concourse of citizens. ["The Soldiers' Journal", May 04, 1864, (Rendevous of Distribution, Va.)]
