Reception of the News at Washington

WASHINGTON, April 9. – The synopsis of the newspaper reports of the Tennessee battle was read both in the Senate and House.  It was listened too with unusual interest.  In the latter branch there was some slight applause which suddenly ceased.

The latest dispatch from Com. Foote was also read and this was enthusiastically received in the House.

– Published in the Burlington Weekly Hawk-Eye, Burlington, Iowa, Saturday, April 12, 1862, p. 3
