St Albans Raid

CSA Lieutenant Bennett H Young led a force of twenty-one cavalry forces, mostly confederates who had escaped to Canada from assorted prisons. Beginning 10 Oct 1864, Young with a couple of others, checked into a hotel in St Albans, claiming they were from St John's in Canada East and were there for a "sporting vacation". Every day, two or three more arrived. At 3pm on 19 Oct, Young with his band staged a robbery at all three banks in town, holding the remaining townspeople hostage in the village green. One townsperson was killed and another wounded and the raiders fled with $208,000 into Canada. Young ordered his men to burn the town down, but the four ounce bottles of Greek fire failed to ignite and only a small shed was destroyed.
The force returned to Canada. Their goal was to bring the money to the Confederacy to help fund the war. However, they were arrested by Canadian authorities. Canadian courts refused to extradite the raiding force, on the basis that they were operating under military orders. The money was returned to St Albans.
