Hillsborough (NC) Recorder
August 14, 1861
INCIDENT—Frederick Hubbard of the New Orleans Washington Artillery, and Henry
Hubbard, of the 1st Minnesota Infantry, brothers, were both wounded
at Manassas, fighting on opposite sides, and after the battle met for the first
time in seven years in a stable, where they and nine other wounded men were
laid. The artilleryman being the less
wounded, was found ministering to his brother.
And the case excited so much interest that a surgeon at once dressed the
Yankee’s wounds and had him removed to his own hospital.
