Editor's note: Tim Rowland is a Herald-Mail columnist and the author of “Strange and Obscure Stories of the Civil War.” A wounded Dutchman lay writhing in a makeshift Washington, D.C., hospital following the Battle of Bull Run, a mission which, for the Union, had begun with frivolity and ended in bloody tatters. If the bullets had been brutal on the flesh, the hospital menu wasn't much better in the way of promoting healing. Hard bread, greasy pork and bitter coffee did not have the medicinal qualities of chicken soup.

A Washington County District Court judge on Wednesday ruled that there was sufficient probable cause to maintain charges against a New York man who briefly escaped from Hagerstown police while he was being held last month on an armed robbery charge. Defense attorney Alex Hutt asked Judge Mark Thomas to drop armed robbery, robbery, assault and felony theft charges against his client, Kristopher Lawrence, 26, of Brooklyn, N.Y. Hutt said although Lawrence was at the scene of an armed robbery on July 16 near East Avenue, he played a passive role by staying back as another acted as the aggressor.
