General Charles P. Stone was arrested in the middle of the night of February 9, 1862. He spent 189 days in a military jail, but was never charged with anything. Stone was blamed for the disastrous Battle of Ball’s Bluff, but in reality his primary crime was making enemies among the Radical Republicans in the U.S. Senate. In August, he was abruptly released, but his military career was never the same.
