Abstract:

While most people interested in Civil War history have heard of the horrible conditions at the prison camp located in Andersonville, Georgia, at Camp Sumter, it is a little known fact that the Union troops held there received the same medical care and rations as the Confederate soldiers in the field. Union soldiers were imprisoned at Andersonville starting in 1864. Following several failed attempts at negotiating prisoner exchanges, over 15,000 men, Confederate and Union, died in the course of one year. While there has been much written about Andersonville, this book presents seldom-seen documentation from the Confederates who ran the camp, as well as discussions by contemporary historians.
