Shrieks At Hampton

"THE WAR OF 1812: Writings from America's Second War of Independence" 

From Campaigns of the war of 1812-15:

"A Select Committee of Congress...say in their report: 'The shrieks of the innocent victims of infernal lust at Hampton [Virginia] were heard by the American prisoners, but were too weak to reach the ears or disturb the repose of British officers, whose duty as men required them to protect every female whom the fortune of war had thrown into their power."'
