Memoirs of Service with John Yates Beall, C. By W W Baker , of Chesterfield. Edited with an introduction by Douglas Southall Freeman, Ph.Published The Richmond Press, Richmond , Virginia 1910. Signed/inscribed by author - To my friend Dr James Nelson, W. Baker's reminiscences first appeared in the Richmond Time-Dispatch, then edited by Douglas Southall Freeman. Beall and his men composed a group of Confederate naval irregulars.
They operated in the Chesapeake area at sea in much the same way that Mosby operated in the Valley. Beall and Baker eventually made their way to Canada and mounted a raid in Lake Erie to free the Confederate prisoners on Johnson's Island. Beall was eventually captured and hanged by Federal authorities.
