Denning McTague tried to turn his unpaid intern job in the National Archives here into a moneymaker last summer by stealing some documents and selling them on eBay, the Justice Department said yesterday.
He took 165 Civil War documents and sold them on the online auction, but then someone tipped off the federal government and McTague's activities were uncovered.
U.S. Attorney Pat Meehan announced yesterday that McTague has been charged with the thefts. He hasn't been incarcerated and isn't considered a flight risk, said a Justice Department spokesman.
