Maryland former Confederate General Bradley T. Johnson arrested in Baltimore on a charge of treason

Bradley T. Johnson, detail
Former Confederate General Bradley Tyler Johnson had returned some time earlier to his home state of Maryland but was finally arrested on a charge of treason sworn out the previous summer by a Maryland grand jury.  As a C.S.A. general he was ineligible for automatic parole and his judge required a $20,000 bond.  President Johnson later dismissed all the charges against Johnson, largely on the recommendation of General U.S. Grant.  (By John Osborne)
