The New Haven Palladium said that “a letter from an officer of the 27th Regiment . . . goes on to say: from Falmouth [the VA camp] the rebels [defending Fredericksburg] are daily seen, playing ball and apparently enjoying themselves. When the river is narrow, our pickets and theirs hold daily conversations and make friendly exchanges of tobacco, coffee, &c.”

“Amenity,” New Haven Palladium, April 1, 1863. Accessed May 21, 2009, via Genealogybank subscription. The 27th CT, centered in New Haven. The online regimental history [Google search: “27th Connecticut Volunteers] appears to have no references to ballplaying.
