A Union soldier stole a book from Washington College during David Hunter's raid of Lexington, Virgina in June of 1864. It's now been returned. (Not by the soldier, he's dead.)
A note the soldier inscribed in the book reads: "This book was taken from the Military Institute at Lexington Virginia in June 1864 when General Hunter was on his Lynchburg raid. The Institution was burned by the order of Gen. Hunter."
All fines have been waived. I'm a little confused by the story though as the soldier claims he stole it from the "Military Institute" but the article claims it was stolen from Washington College.
(Now, if we could just get them to return all the family silver they stole.)
